Per applicable law, Anti-Joy has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Anti-Joy's sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. For the avoidance of doubt, the preceding sentence in no way limits Anti-Joy's right to restrict access to the Services and/or terminate the Accounts of any users for any reason, in Anti-Joy's sole discretion, including, without limitation, in the case of users who infringe or allegedly infringe, any Intellectual Property Rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Please be advised that according to law, you may be held liable for damages if you make material misrepresentations in a Notice. Thus, if you are not sure that material located on or linked to by the Services infringes your copyright, you should consider first contacting an attorney.
