What is the DMCA ?

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes the act of circumventing an access control, whether or not there is actual infringement of copyright itself. In addition, the DMCA heightens the penalties for copyright infringement on the Internet. Passed on October 12, 1998, by a unanimous vote in the United States Senate and signed into law by President Bill Clinton on October 28, 1998, the DMCA amended Title 17 of the United States Code to extend the reach of copyright, while limiting the liability of the providers of online services for copyright infringement by their users.
The DMCA's principal innovation in the field of copyright is the exemption from direct and indirect liability of Internet service providers and other intermediaries. This exemption was adopted by the European Union in the Electronic Commerce Directive 2000. The Copyright Directive 2001 implemented the 1996 WIPO Copyright Treaty in the EU. The Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act ("OCILLA"), creates a safe harbor for online service providers (OSPs, including ISPs) against copyright infringement liability, provided they meet specific requirements. OSPs must adhere to and qualify for certain prescribed safe harbor guidelines and promptly block access to alleged infringing material (or remove such material from their systems) when they receive notification of an infringement claim from a copyright holder or the copyright holder's agent. OCILLA also includes a counter notification provision that offers OSPs a safe harbor from liability to their users when users claim that the material in question is not, in fact, infringing. OCILLA also facilitates issuing of subpoenas against OSPs to provide their users' identity.

Eternally Blessed and the DMCA
Eternally Blessed has taken and continues to take the DMCA seriously. Below you will find guidance for drafting and submitting a notification to Eternally Blessed which will help ensure that your Notice is handled as promptly as possible. It doesn’t matter whether you are a big corporation with multiple copyrighted materials or an individual with single copyrighted work, your copyright is important to us, and we will do what is required to protect your copyrights under the DMCA.
Who can submit a DMCA Notice?
The DMCA only allows the copyright holder or a legally authorized agent of the copyright holder to legally submit DMCA Notices. If you are neither the copyright holder, nor the authorized agent thereof, and you have information on what you believe to be copyrighted work found on our site, please direct your findings to the copyright holder. Legally, under the DMCA, only the copyright holder can identify their property and affirm under the penalty of perjury that it should be taken down.
What information do we need in a DMCA Notice?
A properly formatted DMCA Notice will adhere to the guidelines and principals established by the DMCA itself. The necessary elements of a properly formed DMCA notice are:
Clear identification of the person or entity submitting the DMCA Notice. Clearly stated relationship to the copyright holder (self or authorized agent.) A specific listing of all content the DMCA Notice is requesting Eternally Blessed take down. Please keep in mind some content is posted multiple and each instance will need to be specifically referenced. Clear statement, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that you are copyright holder, or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright holder. A scanned image or photocopy of the United States copyright notice. A “physical or electronic signature” of an authorized person to act on behalf of the owner. This is fulfilled by a name and physical address that the authorized individual can be contacted should someone wish to contest your notification. While not legally required by the DMCA, including “copyright violation” in the subject line of your email will flag your DMCA Notice and bypass spam categorization. Submit the Notice to EB.mailus@gmail.com
What will Eternally Blessed do with a proper Notice?
Once we have proper identification of the infringing material through a properly formed DMCA Notice, we will remove all identified infringing material expeditiously. Upon removal of the material, we will respond via email to your Notice informing you that we have deleted the materials you have identified.

Why is there a login?

The login function is for contributors and people actually working  on the teachings. We have thousands of items to go through, cleanup and then present to the world. All of this work is completed by a handful of volunteers and requires very detailed-time consuming work. (And coordination!)
So we are not trying to with-hold anything from those that are enjoying the site and cyberblessed. There are over 2700 items freely available.  But,  adding new users to the login portion (with the exception of those working on materials) is not available at this time. Once a person has login authority, they have access to edit-add-compile and post items. Without a complete working knowledge of the site and our mission, login access is given after training.
