SpinTel views the infringement of third party intellectual property rights (including copyright infringement) as a very serious matter. SpinTel’s Standard Form of Agreement (which is available at http://www.spintel.net.au/terms) provides that account holders must not use SpinTel’s network to engage in activities that are illegal, including infringing intellectual property rights.
If an account holder uses SpinTel’s network or systems to infringe copyright, this may constitute a breach of SpinTel’s Standard Form of Agreement which may allow SpinTel to suspend or terminate an account holder’s service. SpinTel has also adopted a “repeat infringer policy” in accordance with Condition 1, Item 1 of section 116AH(1) of the Copyright Act 1968 and reserves the right to suspend or terminate its subscribers’ accounts in accordance with this policy.
SpinTel has a responsibility to follow copyright law and takes this law very seriously. We believe in providing an open access Internet service and treating our customers fairly. As such, we pursue action in the circumstances set out in our Repeat Infringer Policy.
SpinTel is required by regulation (Copyright Regulations 1969 (Cth) (the Regulations)) to have a ‘designated representative’ to receive notices and notifications issued under the Regulations.
SpinTel’s ‘designated representative’ is the Copyright Infringement Officer.
Notifications of infringement relating to Category C and D activities of section 116AH(1) of the Copyright Act must be in the form prescribed by the Regulations.
Claims of copyright infringement are to be sent to:
• Attention: Copyright Infringement Officer
• Address: Suite 201, Level 2, 418A Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010
• Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
• Fax: 1300 300 374
