AT&T Copyright Alert Program
AT&T respects the intellectual property rights of others. Accordingly, you may not use AT&T's network, systems or servers to transmit, upload, download, post or submit any content, images or data in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including under US copyright law.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides that owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may report alleged infringements to service providers like AT&T when content is stored or hosted on AT&T equipment. Separately, under AT&T's Copyright Alert Program, AT&T voluntarily accepts and processes allegations of infringement over peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies so long as the content provider, or its agent, submitting such allegation abides by AT&T's business rules .
The AT&T Copyright Alert Program informs you about possible copyright infringement on your Internet service account (like unlawful video or audio file sharing) so that you, as the account owner, can take steps to prevent any future possible infringement using your Internet service account. Sharing copyrighted material using P2P technologies without the permission of the copyright owner or its authorized representative is in many instances unlawful and can subject infringers to potential civil and criminal liability. The unlawful use of copyrighted materials also violates AT&T's High Speed Internet Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy.
AT&T's Copyright Alert Program is designed to help make our customers aware of possible instances of copyright infringement using their Internet service account in order to help them take measures to prevent future possible infringement.
