Copyright on YoNinja

Copyright - How do we monitor and prevent copyright infractions?

YoNinja.com is a user based travel and review site. Our reviews/listings are submitted by our users and these users are bound by the terms of use, which clearly state that they are to only post reviews with copy that they create themselves and with images, graphics, and photos that they have taken/created themselves or have been given explicit permission to use on YoNinja.com. 

YoNinja.com is a free service on the web and we allow anyone to become a member of our site. We take copyright infringement very seriously and actively monitor our site for inappropriate users. In our site's terms of use, it clearly states that our users are to only upload content which they own the intellectual copyrights to. A repeat offender of the terms of use will be immediately terminated along with any content they have submitted to YoNinja.com.

YoNinja.com strictly follows the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and we have set out the rules for our users to follow in our terms of use. If you have come across a page on our site where you noticed one of your image(s) being used without your permission, immediately contact us, using the process outlined below. Once we receive your formal request, we will immediately remove the content from YoNinja and inform the user of the offense. 

We feel educating our users is the best course of action to prevent users from uploading images that they do not own the rights to. However, we understand that some users may not be interested in following the rules and laws established. We work closely with content creators to enforce these rules and remove users that are identified as repeat offenders.

 

Copyright Infringement Notification Basics

If you believe your copyright-protected work has been posted on YoNinja.com without your written or verbal authorization, you may submit a copyright infringement notification to us via our contact form located at www.yoninja.com/contact.

These requests should only be submitted by the copyright owner or an agent authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.

If you choose to request removal of content by submitting an infringement notification, please remember that you are initiating a legal process. Do not make false claims. Misuse of this process may result in other legal consequences.

In line with DMCA requirements, please provide us with the following:

  • A contact name

  • The URL where the image appears
  • A description of the image
  • A link to where you display the rights to your image or content in question.

Provide this information to us through our contact form.

Once we receive this removal request, we will immediately remove your content from our site, and provide you with an email notification once the content has been removed.

If you are unable to use the contact form, you may contact our designated DMCA agent at copyright@yoninja.com.
