Tell the Truth. The DMCA requires that you swear to the facts in your copyright complaint under penalty of perjury. It is a federal crime to intentionally lie in a sworn declaration. (See U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 1621.) Submitting false information could also result in civil liability — that is, you could get sued for money damages. The DMCA itself provides for damages against any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing.
GGA is not liable for copyright infringements due to the submission of articles/photos or images of any kind. We do take this seriously and once all information is received, our compliance department will review and take down material that is under our control (i.e. website, e-magazine, GGA YouTube, GGA Facebook, GGA Instagram, social media posts made by our executive board of directors.) Please note that we do not have control over third party posting but will provide the information required (name and email of the contributor) if the complaint meets all areas listed above **
GGA will terminate the GGA membership who are repeat infringers of copyright infringement.
