Parr Lumber Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy

Effective Date: May 3, 2013

Introduction

Parr Lumber Company (“Parr”) has adopted this policy in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, including the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act (the “DMCA”).

Infringement Policy

Parr will respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with or substantially comply with the requirements set forth in this DMCA Policy. Parr does not act as an arbiter or judge of disputes about intellectual property rights. It is our policy to remove text and other material (“Content”) posted by users on our www.parr.com website, including without limitation our blog at http://parr.com/blog/ (the “Website”), which Content we believe in good faith is infringing a copyrighted work. By removing Content, as a prudential matter, Parr is not endorsing or validating a claim of infringement. If we remove Content from the Website, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the party responsible for posting the Content so the owner may make a counter notification as provided for below. It is also our policy to suspend and/or terminate access of users of the Website who we believe are repeat copyright infringers. We will document notices of alleged infringement and counter-notifications.

Designated Agent

In accordance with the DMCA, Parr has a Designated Agent to handle copyright infringement notices and counter-notifications:
Parr Lumber Company
Attn: DMCA Agent
Address:
5630 Northwest Century Boulevard
Hillsboro, Oregon 97124
USA
E-mail: nancyc@parr.com

Infringement Notification

If you believe your work has been displayed or otherwise used on the Website in a manner that infringes your copyright, you must provide written notification of such to our Designated Agent via mail and/or e-mail. Please note that you may be liable for damages, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and costs, if you materially misrepresent that your work has been infringed by Content on the Website. If you are unsure whether your work has been infringed, we recommend that you contact an attorney before sending notice to our Designated Agent.
You must use the following format for your written notification:
(a) Identify in sufficient detail your copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed by Content on the Website;
(b) Identify the Content on the Website that you claim infringes your copyrighted work. You must identify all Content that you believe infringes, describe how the Content infringes your work, and describe where the Content is located on the Website with sufficient detail so that we can verify its existence and remove it if we believe in good faith that it infringes your copyrighted work. In the event that the allegedly-infringing Content is located in more than one place on the Website, identify each location;
(c) Provide your contact information, including your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address, if any;
(d) You must include a statement that, under the penalty of perjury, you have a good-faith belief that use of the Content in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
(e) You must include a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; and
(f) You must sign the written notification physically or electronically.
In addition to the foregoing, it would help if you included a copy of the copyright Certificate of Registration for your work, if any, or other information that supports your claim that your work is protected by copyright and that you are the owner of that copyright or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner.

Review of Infringement Notices

After the Designated Agent receives your infringement notice, Parr will review it. If your notice contains the required information, and if we have a good-faith belief that the Content is infringing your copyright, we will remove the infringing Content.

Counter Notification

The provider of affected Content may make a counter notification pursuant to the DMCA. To file a counter notification, you must provide written notification to our Designated Agent via mail and/or e-mail. Please note that you may be liable for damages, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and costs, if you materially misrepresent that your Content is not infringing the copyright of a third party. If you are unsure whether your Content infringes the copyright of a third party, we recommend that you contact an attorney before sending notice to our Designated Agent.
You must use the following format for your written notification:
(a) Identify the Content that has been removed, including a description of where the Content was located on the Website before it was removed. In the event that the Content was located in more than one place on the Website, you should identify each location;
(b) Provide your contact information, including your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address, if any;
(c) You must include a statement that, under the penalty of perjury, you have a good-faith belief that the Content was removed as a result of mistake or misidentification of the Content to be removed;
(d) You must include a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or, if your address is outside the United States, in the Federal District Court of Oregon, USA, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement or an agent of such person; and
(e) You must sign the written notification physically or electronically.

Review of Counter Notification

After the Designated Agent receives your counter notification, Parr will review it. We may determine that the Content is not infringing and may reinstate the Content on the Website.

Notice of Repeat Infringement

Parr will, if appropriate, terminate repeat infringers’ access to the Website. If you believe a Website user is a repeat infringer, please follow the instructions above to contact our Designated Agent and provide sufficient information so we can verify that the user is a repeat infringer.
