The Comcast DMCA Policy
Comcast Cable Communications, LLC (“Comcast,” “we,” or “our”) is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and expects all of our customers, users, and visitors (collectively and each individually, “users”) to comply with these laws. Users may not store any material or content on, or access, share, or disseminate any material or content over, any of our product or service offerings that in any manner that infringes third party intellectual property rights, including U.S. copyright rights.
We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and provide a method for copyright owners to communicate information about alleged infringements to us, and for us to inform our users about them, as further described below. Users may receive notices or alerts if their Comcast account is identified by a copyright owner as having been used in connection with acts of alleged copyright infringement.
Comcast maintains a policy to terminate a Comcast account, in appropriate circumstances, provided to any user who is a repeat infringer of third party copyright rights under our repeat infringer policy. Our policy includes graduated or escalated alerts of alleged infringements, required action by users for certain alerts, suspension of a Comcast product or service offering, the application of other interim measures determined in Comcast’s sole discretion to the offering, and, in appropriate circumstances, termination of the offering (and other services provided by Comcast to the user). Users can learn more about Comcast’s DMCA policy here. We also reserve the right to terminate our offerings at any time with or without notice for any affected user who we, in our sole discretion, believe is infringing any copyright or other intellectual property rights.
If you are the owner of a copyrighted work who believes that your rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed by any material on our offerings, you can report that to us by sending our authorized agent a notification of claimed infringement. When we receive a notice of claimed infringement that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA, we will respond expeditiously to either directly or indirectly (i) remove the allegedly infringing work(s) residing on our offerings or (ii) disable access to the work(s) residing on our offerings, if applicable. We will also notify the affected user when we take any of these actions. Copyright owners should know that in some cases users of our offerings may be unregistered and anonymous, such as visitors to a website. In those cases, our ability to process and act on a DMCA notification may be limited or unavailable.
Send notifications of claimed copyright infringement only to:
Comcast Cable Communications, LLC
1800 Bishops Gate Boulevard
Mt. Laurel, NJ 08054
Copyright owners may use their own notification of claimed infringement form that satisfies the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. Note: Under the DMCA, anyone who knowingly makes misrepresentations regarding alleged copyright infringement may be liable to Comcast, the alleged infringer, and the affected copyright owner for any damages incurred in connection with the removal, blocking, or replacement of allegedly infringing material.
If a user receives a DMCA notification of alleged infringement, and believes in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then that user may send us a counter notification. When we receive a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA, we will provide a copy of it to the person who sent the original infringement notification and will follow the DMCA’s procedures with respect to received counter notifications. In all events, all users expressly agree that Comcast will not be a party to any disputes or lawsuits regarding alleged copyright infringement.
Users may file counter notifications with Comcast’s designated agent using the contact information shown above. All counter notifications must satisfy the requirements of Section 512(g)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act.
