Copyright - Flag, Claim and Infringement
Our indie community is committed to provide fair guidelines and rules regarding copyright, protection of
developers' work in a fair and transparent way.
If you suspect that a user has uploaded stolen content on our platform or in fact, a user has uploaded
your work without appropriate permission, there are 3 basic tools that are available to you.
These three tools include: Flagging the content, filing a claim or request a takedown in filing for copyright infringement.
The three options will be explained more thoroughly on this page.
This is by far the easiest way to report copyright violations if you are NOT the original creator of the
work uploaded. If you are convinced that the user who has uploaded the content does not have appropriate permission
from the artist to upload their work or has published derivative work without a legitimate permission or license
from the original creator, you can report them on the game's page. Abuse of this feature will result in a warning or ban
according to our Copyright Office Act. Statute Book for further reading: https://superwerer.com/StatuteBook.pdf

If you ARE the original artist of the work being uploaded without appropriate permission on the Portal, then this is
your easiest option to get the issue resolved. On the game's page, you can file a claim of the work that was uploaded
without appropriate license, provide evidence that you are the original creator and the Copyright Office will
investigate into the matter and get back to you very soon. Abuse of this feature will results
in either a warn or a ban according to the Copyright Office Act. The process is described in our Copyright Office Act, which
can be found here for further reading: https://superwerer.com/StatuteBook.pdf

This third option is generally not recommended, as it requires more steps to complete and can backfire in case your copyright
infringement claim is found to be invalid or contain false information or allegations. Instead we would highly advise you
to use our built-in Claims feature described in the paragraph above. If you nevertheless decide to take this path, here's how to go about it.
Under Article 14 of the European Parliament and Council's Electronic Commerce Directive we are committed to the takedown of illegally uploaded
information upon receiving notice of it.
To file copyright infringement you will have to send us a written letter at the address below. It shall contain the following:
- Provide us with the electronic address/URL of the work that has infringed upon your copyright.
- Identify the parts within the work that are infringing upon your copyright.
- Provide sufficient information for us to contact you back upon receiving and processing the filing.
- Include the following sentence: "I verify, under penalty of perjury that the information
provided in this letter is accurate, true and correct."
The letter must then be signed by you and sent to the following address:
35080 Bad Endbach-Bottenhorn
