DMCA Copyright Notification
Last Updated: April 2014
Readable fully respects the intellectual property of others. Whilst we believe that transcription of videos by users falls under 'Fair Use', a provision deeply embedded into the core fabric of copyright law, we respect the wishes of copyright holders if they prefer not to have their videos transcribed and translated by our community of users.
Readable will promptly remove any transcripts from the Readable website in accordance with the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) if properly notified that the materials infringe a third party's copyright.
How Copyright Holders can file a DMCA Notice to Remove Copyrighted Content
