mobilesforums does not condone, allow or permit copyrighted content to be uploaded to our servers. Please ensure you read and understand this policy before uploading to mobilesforums servers or filing a copyright infringement notice.

DMCA
mobilesforums accepts DMCA infringement notices for copyrighted material.

External infringements
To file an infringement notice for a file that is not hosted on mobilesforums servers (subdomains ending in .mobilesforums.com), please follow the copyright infringement process of the site the file is hosted on. mobilesforums does not have access to remove files on external services and therefore may not respond to copyright infringement notices relating to files on external services.

Internal infringements
mobilesforums may remove pages that link to copyrighted material. To file a copyright infringement notice with mobilesforums, you must provide written communication using one of two methods set forth below. By filing a copyright infringement notice you understand and accept if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing on your copyright, you will be liable for damages including costs and attorney fees.

Option One, Email: Your notice must contain all of the following to be accepted:
  • Details of the copyrighted work that you believe is infringed upon including its location under the mobilesforums.com domain.
  • An email address where mobilesforums can contact you.
  • Information and/or proof that you are the copyright holder or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
  • The statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."
  • A digital signature.


mobilesforums will generally handle complaints within 48 hours of the complaint being received. The contact details for filing a copyright infringement notice can be found on our contact us page.

Option Two, Registering as a Developer/Author/Other copyright holder or representitive: Alternatively to filing a copyright complaint by email, you may register on the forum and send a private message (PM) to the Section Head of the forum where the infringing content was posted. Section heads are listed on the index under the title of each section. Your first notice must include all of the following to be accepted:

  • Details of the copyrighted work that you believe is infringed upon including its location under the mobilesforums.com domain.
  • Information and/or proof that you are the copyright holder or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
  • The statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."

Once your identity is confirmed, subsequent emails are only required to have a link to the infringing content and the statement of the last bulletpoint. Messaging section heads directly will generally result in much faster removal than emailing us.

Repeat infringers
Any users of mobilesforums services who repeatedly upload copyrighted material to mobilesforums servers may have a permanent ban placed on their account if they are issued with more than two infringement notices.
