CONTENT REMOVAL

UrbanMusicDaily indexes audio media from various methods (including Videos & Mixtapes):
- Email submissions by DJ’s, Record Labels, Artists, Songwriters and aswell as Producers (click here)
- Automatic indexing – This means links are collected automatically from other third-parties, the same way google collects web-pages.

Also, UrbanMusicDaily, does NOT actually host any media. The site only collects links & indexes them automatically, this also means any audio links sent via email (our contact form), means the site will automatically index the submitted links.

Due to the volume of content we receive it is impossible for us to determine if the works are authorized by the copyright holder. As such we claim safe harbor under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512. Pursuant to the DMCA, if you are a copyright holder and believe your work is being infringed upon, then please tell us the following 2 options.

You have two options (#1 and #2) to follow the takedown procedure, please let us know which option you take, by reading below.

#1. Tell us to disable any downloads to that audio link, then send us an iTunes/Amazon link instead. This means any download requests will now point to iTunes or Amazon or other link of your choice. This means visitors can still listen to the audio but they must download the audio from iTunes or other digital store of your choice. You are required by law to send the following info:
- Link of that audio (from THIS WEBSITE eg. http://www.urbanmusicdaily.net/123abcdXYZ)
- Your contact details [Email, Tel, Address, Etc..]
- Identify yourself as either:
a) The owner of a copyrighted work(s), or
b) A person “authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
- State 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 agents, or the law.
- State that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
- Once the information is correct, please contact us via: content [at] urbanmusicdaily [dot] net

#2. If you really want the linked material disabled competely and removed from the site, then you’re required by law to follow the DMCA procedure written below:
- Provide a written communication with exact reference to the content you claim ownership to. This message must contain following:
#. Name and the exact URL of your copyrighted material.
#. Contact information so that we may contact you (street address, phone and email etc.).
