Upon receipt of notice as described above, Sharkslive will seek to confirm the existence of the IP on the Site, notify the registered user who posted the content including the IP, and take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including temporary or permanent removal of the IP from the Site. A registered user may respond to notice of takedown by showing either (a) that the claimant does not own the IP or (b) that the IP is not infringed. If the registered user succeeds in showing either (a) or (b) then Sharkslive may exercise its discretion not to remove the IP.

While we may in our discretion use the information provided in order to decide how to respond to infringement claims, we are not responsible for determining the merits of such claims. If a user responds to a claim of infringement by providing assurances that its content is not infringing, the user agrees that if we thereafter restore or maintain the content, the user will defend and hold Sharkslive harmless from any resulting claims of infringement brought against Sharkslive.
