About Copyright.

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we prohibit users from uploading, posting or otherwise transmitting on the Glam website any materials that violate another party’s intellectual property rights. When we receive proper notification of alleged copyright infringement, we promptly remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material and terminate the accounts of repeat infringers in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Please read our Copyright Policy for details on how to notify us if you believe that your content was mistakenly or incorrectly reported as copyright infringing.

How can I tell if content is copyrighted?

Before uploading content to the Glam website, please be certain that you own the copyright to all content in your work or that you have the permission of the copyright owner to use the content. If all the content is created solely by you and does not contain material created by any other party — or if the copyright holder has the otherwise authorized you to use that material — you may upload the content (as long as it complies with our Terms of Use).
We cannot provide you with legal advice about whether you own the copyright to the material you upload or if you are authorized to use that material, so please consult an attorney to be certain of your rights. In addition, the following websites offer useful background information on the law of copyright and other intellectual property laws:

What can I do if I don’t own the copyright to the content I uploaded or I do not have the permission of the copyright owner to use it?

We strictly prohibit uploading and transferring infringing material on the Glam website and we terminate the accounts of repeat infringers. You may only upload content to the Glam website if you are certain that you have the legal right to do so. If you are not certain that you are legally authorized to use the content you have uploaded to our website, you should remove it immediately.

Please consult our Copyright Policy for more information.

Do I own the copyright to content that I filmed on my own camcorder or phone from the television, live concert, or sporting event?

Just because you recorded the content onto your own recording device such as a phone or camcorder does not necessarily mean that you own the copyright to that material or that you are authorized to use it. Disclaiming ownership of that content cannot protect you from infringing on the true owner’s copyright. If you have any question whatsoever as to whether you are legally authorized to use or upload any content, consult an attorney before uploading it to the Glam website.

What does “public domain” mean?

Content is released into the “public domain” when the term of the copyright on that content expires. Once content is in the public domain, it can be used freely by the public. You can learn more about content in the “public domain” at the following resources:

How do I report copyright infringement that exists in a third party application that was not built by Glam?

Some applications, as you may know, are not created or implemented by Glam but rather are created by a third party. As such, Glam does not have the right and ability to control particular works made available through these applications.

That being said, Glam takes its responsibilities quite seriously and will take action when a third party application developer does not comply with his/her legal obligations related to content issues. We suggest contacting this developer directly with your concerns. After working with this person, please be sure to contact us at customercare @ GlamMedia.com. if this problem persists.
