(a) A description of the copyrighted work(s) you believe are infringed;
(b) The exact location (URL) where the infringing material resides on the Service;

Before you file an infringement notice, please carefully consider whether or not the use of copyrighted material at issue is protected by the “fair use” doctrine, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use.   Please also check to make sure you haven’t authorized the use at issue (for example, whether you have given a creative professional who prepared materials for your company the right to use those materials as examples of his or her past work).    If you are unsure whether a use of your copyrighted material constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney.  You may also wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at the U.S. Copyright website (www.copyright.gov) or at the Chilling Effects website (www.chillingeffects.org).
