If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide The State Bar’s copyright agent with the following information in writing (the “Notification”):

  1. a physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner;
  2. identification of the work that you believe is being infringed;
  3. identification of the material that you believe infringes the work;
  4. a description of where the material is located on The State Bar’s site;
  5. your address, telephone number, and email address;
  6. a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  7. a statement by you that the information you are sending is accurate and that you are, under penalty of perjury, the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

In the event that The State Bar receives a notice of alleged infringement complying with the above requirements, The State Bar will disable access to or remove the material, and will then promptly use reasonable efforts to notify the party who originally posted the allegedly infringing material that the material was disabled or removed.

If your material has been removed because of an alleged claim of copyright infringement, please provide The State Bar’s copyright agent with the following written information (the “Counter-Notification”):

  1. your physical or electronic signature;
  2. identification of the material that was removed or disabled;
  3. identification of where the material was located before it was removed or disabled;
  4. a statement by you, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material;
  5. your name, address, and telephone number;
  6. a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if you are located outside of the United States, provide a statement that you consent to any judicial district in Texas; and
  7. a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the allegation of infringement.

Upon receipt of the Counter-Notification by The State Bar’s copyright agent, The State Bar will promptly use reasonable efforts to provide a copy of the Counter-Notification to the person identified in the Notification along with notice that the material will be replaced or re-activated in ten (10) business days. The State Bar will, in ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days after receipt of the Counter-Notification, restore the disabled or removed material, unless the person claiming to be the copyright holder has filed an action in a court of law preventing The State Bar from doing so and informs The State Bar’s copyright agent of the action.
