Procedure for Alleging Copyright Infringement
Uniek respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same.

This specifically includes the submission of a design or design idea. Uniek reserves the right, in its discretion, to remove any User Submission if we believe it may infringe the copyright rights of others and/or to terminate the accounts of users whom we believe to be infringers.

Uniek will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), as set forth below.

  • your address, telephone number, and e-mail address

  • a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed)
  • your electronic or physical signature
Uniek will only receive DMCA notices by mail or e-mail at the addresses below:
