Copyright Infringement

"Copyright infringement is the use of works protected by copyright law without permission, infringing certain exclusive rights granted to the copyright holder, such as the right to reproduce, distribute, display or perform the protected work, or to make derivative works. The copyright holder is typically the work's creator, or a publisher or other business to whom copyright has been assigned. Copyright holders routinely invoke legal and technological measures to prevent and penalize copyright infringement."

"Copyright infringement disputes are usually resolved through direct negotiation, a notice and take down process, or litigation in civil court. Egregious or large-scale commercial infringement, especially when it involves counterfeiting, is sometimes prosecuted via the criminal justice system. Shifting public expectations, advances in digital technology, and the increasing reach of the Internet have led to such widespread, anonymous infringement that copyright-dependent industries now focus less on pursuing individuals who seek and share copyright-protected content online, and more on expanding copyright law to recognize and penalize, as indirect infringers, the service providers and software distributors who are said to facilitate and encourage individual acts of infringement by others."

"Estimates of the actual economic impact of copyright infringement vary widely and depend on many factors. Nevertheless, copyright holders, industry representatives, and legislators have long characterized copyright infringement as piracy or theft – language which some U.S. courts now regard as pejorative or otherwise contentious."

Can copyright permission be revoked?

When permission to use copyright material that has not been paid for in some form, and has no clearly defined contract of use, and possibly even has a contract of use (verbal or otherwise), but no time period defined, in the end, the copyright holder is the creator.

A paid for copyright is very different, and should specify within the payment and agreement the allocations of use for the copyright material, such as time based, unlimited, and/or complete sale of the copyright & material that the copyright applies to. There has to be an exchange of money, items, or services to establish some sort of copyright use that cannot be revoked in most cases.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Notice

If you believe that material available on our website, blog or forums or in a comment, including those hosted at Tranquility With Serenity and/or CG Productions, infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by submitting a DMCA notice. After we receive a valid and complete notice, we will investigate, remove the material, and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material, via email or otherwise. Learn more about our process here.

Please note that we are unable to process DMCA notices that refer to sites hosted on third party servers that use self-hosted software. Please refer to this page for more information on the differences between ours vs theirs.

Tranquility With Serenity and/or CG Productions is a publishing platform where users often use copyrighted materials in commentary or journalism, or transform the materials into something original. As such, before submitting a DMCA notice, it’s important to consider whether the material used falls under fair use. If you are not sure whether material located on a Tranquility With Serenity and/or CG Productions site infringes on your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice.

You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material or activity infringes on your copyright. We have and will highlight such abuses and seek to collect those damages.

Your DMCA notice will be forwarded to the party that made the material available, and also may be sent to third parties. A note may also be placed on the site in question detailing the name of the copyright owner who submitted the takedown notice. In addition, you are required to consider the possible fair use implications, as a result of Lenz v. Universal. We reserve the right to challenge abuses of the DMCA process, and your use of this form does not waive that right.


Steps to file a DMCA notice:

  • Verify that the blog in question is hosted by Tranquility With Serenity and/or CG Productions. We have no control over websites, blogs or forums that say "Powered by WordPress" or any other such thing. Those websites, blogs or forums use the open source or other types of software and are not hosted by us. Please contact the appropriate web host with complaints. We only host websites, blogs or forums that have "tranquilitywithserenity.live" in their URL or that say "designed by CG Productions, Chopper Gausman" at the bottom of the site.
  • Contact the user directly. Go to the website, blog or forum in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the user or owner.
  • Send your complaint to our designated agent via the form below, if the issue cannot be resolved directly with the user or owner.
As required by the DMCA, we have a policy to terminate users and/or sites that we consider to be repeat infringers. Although we won’t share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy (we don’t want anyone to abuse the system, after all), we believe that it strikes the right balance: it protects the rights of copyright owners and protects legitimate users from wrongful termination. Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a user or site.
