  • a description of the infringing material and information sufficient to permit Stanford to locate the material;
  • contact information for you, including your address, telephone number, and/or email address;
  • a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, or its agent, or the law;
  • a statement by you, signed under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that you have the authority to enforce the copyrights that are claimed to be infringed; and
  • a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf.
Failure to include all of the above-listed information may result in a delay of the processing of your complaint. Stanford will terminate the online privileges of users who infringe the copyright of others.
