21.6    The information in this Section 21 sets forth our procedures for filing DMCA infringement notifications and counter-notifications, and is not legal advice; it should not be relied upon as such and may not reflect the latest changes in the law or applicable regulations. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Before you file a DMCA notification or counter-notification, you should first consult with your attorney or solicitor. It is even more important to consult an attorney or solicitor before filing a counter-notification if you are a non-U.S. resident, particularly as you will be consenting to the jurisdiction of the United States courts.

21.7    You should note that filing an infringement counter-claim will result in disclosure of personal information when it is forwarded to the person who filed the infringement claim.

21.8    We reserve the right to remove any content or materials alleged or believed to be infringing copyright or other intellectual property rights without prior notice, in our sole discretion, and without liability to you or anyone else.
