Enforcement of copyright law (The serious bit)
We’re pretty chilled out people here at Opace but we do take copyright law seriously. Therefore, if it is discovered that our website or content is being used without permission, we may be willing to initiate legal proceedings.
First, we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt – after all, you may not have taken our content maliciously! We’ll simply get in touch and give you the option to remove our copyrighted content from your website or publication. Providing you do this within a reasonable time frame, they’ll be no problem and we can all forget it ever happened.
If, however, our request is ignored, or you fail to take action, we will be within our rights to start legal proceedings for monetary damages. Opace will also apply to the courts for an injunction to prevent you from continuing to use our website and its content.
Has someone stolen our content?
We do our best to keep our content protected (hence the need for a copyright notice) however there’s only so much you can do alone. We therefore ask that if you spot our content on another website, you kindly report it by email [email protected] to the Opace team for investigation.
Has your copyright been breached?
