12. Infringing or Objectionable Content

If you would like to make a complaint because you believe content on this website is objectionable or infringes copyright or any other rights, you may contact us at:

Crown Castle International Corp.
Attn: DMCA Notification – Legal Department
2000 Corporate Drive,
Canonsburg, PA 15317

Your complaint should:

  • specify the content which you allege is infringing or objectionable;
  • provide an explanation of why you believe the content is infringing or objectionable; and
  • provide your contact details.

Specifically, in relation to alleged infringement of copyright, your complaint must include the following:

  • a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of a right that is allegedly infringed;
  • identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
  • identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
  • information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted;
  • a statement that you have a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and
  • a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Upon receipt of such notification of alleged copyright infringement, Crown Castle will promptly investigate the matter, and, if appropriate, remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material. After Crown Castle removes or disables access to such material, if such material was posted by a user of this website, Crown Castle will notify the party that posted the material of its action. Such party may then provide Crown Castle’s designated agent proper “counter-notification” stating his, her or its authority to post the allegedly infringing material, which Crown Castle will forward to the alleged copyright owner. Crown Castle will inform the alleged copyright owner that Crown Castle will repost the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 business days unless the alleged copyright owner sends a second notification to Crown Castle’s designated agent stating that it has filed suit against the alleged infringer.

An effective counter-notification must be sent to Crown Castle’s designated agent, whose name and address are listed above. The notice must include the following information:

  • The counter-notifying party’s physical or electronic signature;
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or disabled and the location where the material was before its removal or disablement;
  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the party has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification; and
  • The counter-notifying party’s name, address, phone number, and a statement that the party consents to the jurisdiction of the federal court in its district, or if the subscriber is foreign, it consents to any jurisdiction where Crown Castle is subject to jurisdiction, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided Crown Castle with notification or an agent of such a person.

If you are dissatisfied with our handling of your complaint, you may have the right to escalate it to appropriate officials in your jurisdiction.
