Policies and Reporting

How do I report copyright infringement on BrewTogether?

If you believe someone is infringing your copyright, you can report it to us by filling out this contact form. You can also contact our designated DCMA agent. Before you submit a report of copyright infringement, feel free to send a message to the person who posted the content. Many of these issues can be resolved without contacting BrewTogether formally. Only the copyright owner or their authorized representative may file a report of copyright infringement. If you believe something on BrewTogether infringes someone else’s copyright, consider letting the copyright owner know. Please note that we will provide the rights owner’s name, your email and the details of your report to the person who posted the content you are reporting. In the case that you are an authorized representative submitting a report, we provide the name of the organization or client that owns the right in question.

How do I contact BrewTogether?

The fastest and easiest way to send a DMCA report of copyright infringement to our designated agent is to fill out our online form. Should you wish to contact BrewTogether’s DMCA designated agent directly, please email copyright@brewtogether.com.

We require the following information to process a copyright claim report:

  • Your complete contact information (full name, mailing address and phone number).
  • A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed.
  • A description of the content on our site that you claim infringes your copyright.
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material on our site. The easiest way to do this is by providing web addresses (URLs) leading directly to the allegedly infringing content.
  • A declaration that:
    • You have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted content described above, in the manner you have complained of, is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
    • The information in your notice is accurate.
    • Under penalty of perjury, you are the owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright that is allegedly infringed.
  • Your electronic signature or physical signature.

What do I do if content I posted was removed because it was reported for intellectual property infringement?

When we receive a report from a rights owner claiming content on BrewTogether infringes their intellectual property rights, we may remove that content from BrewTogether without contacting you.

If we remove content you posted because of an intellectual property report, you’ll receive a notification from us that includes the name and email of the rights owner who made the report and/or the details of the report. If you believe the content shouldn’t have been removed, you can contact with them directly to try to resolve the issue.
