  • a description of the material you believe is infringing or the subject of infringing activity, together with enough information to permit us to locate the material;
  • enough information to permit us to contact you, such as, your name, address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address;

  • a statement that all the information you have provided is accurate; and
  • a statement, made under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
