Effective date: 17 November 2016
We take the intellectual property rights of others seriously and require our Customers and their Authorised Users to do the same. The US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) established a process for addressing claims of copyright infringement that we have implemented for Slack services. If you own a copyright or have authority to act on behalf of a copyright owner and want to report a claim that a third party is infringing that material on or through a Slack service, please send a notice to our copyright agent that includes all of the items below and we will promptly take appropriate action:
- A description of the copyrighted work that you claim is being infringed;
- A description of the material you claim is infringing and that you want removed or access to which you want disabled and the URL or other location of that material;
- Your address, telephone number and email address;
- The following statement: “I believe in good faith that the use of the copyrighted material I am complaining about is not authorised by the copyright owner, its agent or the law (e.g. as a fair use)”;
- The following statement: “The information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, I am the owner, or authorised to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed”; and
- An electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or a person authorised to act on the owner’s behalf.
Our designated copyright agent to receive such claims can be reached as follows:
c/o Slack Technologies, LLC
500 Howard Street
San Francisco, CA 94105
By phone: +1-415-630-7943
By email: email@example.com
We may, in appropriate circumstances, disable or terminate the accounts of users who may be repeat infringers.
This process does not limit our ability to pursue any other remedies we may have to address suspected infringement.
