HackerOne respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Under appropriate circumstances, we may warn or suspend users who infringe the copyrights of others, and in more serious cases, such as repeat infringement, we may permanently terminate user accounts.
If you believe that your work is accessible on HackerOne in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that HackerOne contains links or other references to a different online location that contains material that infringes your copyright rights, you may notify us by providing the following information to our designated copyright agent (as required by the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512).
Our designated copyright agent is:
You are required to provide the following information to the designated copyright agent:
HackerOne's response to notices of alleged copyright infringement may include the removal or restriction of access to allegedly infringing material. If we remove or restrict access to user content in response to a notice of alleged infringement, we will make a good faith effort to contact the affected account holder with information concerning the removal or restriction of access, including a copy of the takedown notice, along with instructions for filing a counter-notification.
If you receive a copyright notification, it means that the content described in the notification has been removed from HackerOne or access to the content on HackerOne has been restricted. Please take the time to read through our notice to you, which includes information on the notification we received as well as instructions on how to file a counter-notice.
If you believe that the material reported in the copyright notification you received was misidentified or removed in error, you should file a counter-notice.
To submit a counter-notice, you will need to provide us with the following information:
To submit a counter-notice, please respond to our original email notification of the removal and include the required information in the body of your reply.
Upon receipt of a valid counter-notice, we will promptly forward a copy to the person who filed the original notice. If we do not receive notice within 10 business days that the original reporter has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the account holder from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material at issue, we may restore access to the material that was removed.
Please think carefully before sending us a copyright claim, especially if you are not sure whether you are the actual rights holder or authorized to act on a rights holder's behalf. Please also consider whether the allegedly infringing material might be authorized by law, such as under the fair use doctrine, 17 U.S.C. § 107. Under 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees incurred by us or our users, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing.
If you are unsure whether the material you are reporting is actually infringing, you may wish to contact an attorney before filing a notification with us.
