Automated Data Collection by Company's Platform from various sources across popular internet services & regions
|Investigation||To find Infringers (“Infringers”) who are infringing the rights of the Client.||Collect publicly available information & insights on the infringes or third parties (collectively called the "Infringing Parties") involved in infringements of the Client's Content, for removal of the infringing resource or any other action deemed necessary within the ambit of applicable laws, for piracy reduction.|

Investigation and removals are not bound by this cycle but are limited to the engagement period of the title.||No. of Scans per Title and/or brand per Month as per the frequency chosen and a minimum engagement period of one year of scanning, investigation, and removals. This is the default until unless for a title and/or brand, the cycles are reduced or/and the engagement period is increased by the Client or specified by the Plans in Annexure-II.|
The Course of Action of the Company's Service:
The Company's course of action will start by getting the title list and/or brand list from the Client with all cycles and engagements specified and uploading the information to the Company's platform ("platform").
The Company will grant access to the Client of the platform’s dashboard (“dashboard”) for real-time inspection of the work done by the Company and its platform.
After the titles and/or brands have been uploaded, the data (if anything relevant is found) will be reflected on the platform’s dashboard in a maximum of 7 working days, including the links scanned by the platform to identify the infringements and infringers for the Client.
The dashboard will include the data scanned by the platform, the review done by the platform and the Company’s team, action taken by the Company for each link, and other investigation data.
The Company will send monthly reports and insights (if any) for the data collected and actions taken by the Company, including the pending actions, actions that need follow-ups, and failed actions.
The Company will send an email to the Client for the confirmation of each infringement and will wait for a response from the Client for approving the infringements for removal. The Company will not take any actions or send those data again for review unless confirmed and acknowledged by the Client. In the same manner, the Company will also ask and send links and data to the Client for which the Company has confusion and needs further assistance/information from the Client for confirming infringements.
To speed up the procedure (as slightly restricted by the previous point), the Client can specify what type of Content they consider as confirmed infringements. Hence, they can allow the Company to not ask frequently for those confirmations.
After every cycle (if applicable and as per the chosen plan(s), see Annexure-II), the titles and/or brands will be scanned by the platform again, and the cycles will end after the engagement period of the titles and/or brands unless extended by the Client.
In case of failure in the removal, the Company will report the reason for such failure to the Client and suggest a course of action that the Client may follow to remove the Infringing Content. Anything beyond that will not be considered part of the current service.
The Company reserves the right to reject any request from the Client if the legal grounds to take infringement actions are unclear. In such a scenario, if the Client wants to continue, they need to provide a written statement stating the legal grounds for the Company to take action.
The Company does not offer any guarantees to uncover all infringing resources that might be available at any given time. The service is only to assist the Client in mitigating the impact of copyright infringement by delivering Work Products defined in this SOW. The Company shall not be liable for any damages arising out of failure to identify URLs.
Deliverables of the Client:

A document containing a List of Titles and/or List of Brands must be either attached as a separate document with this Agreement or delivered through electronic email to the Company Email. A sample format for the List of Titles and/or List of Brands is available in Annexure III.
An authorization letter must be signed by the Client to allow the Company to act as a copyright agent on their behalf. The Company can share this letter with 3rd parties for verification.

The Company can request the Client for other non-sensitive information related to the titles and/or brands necessary for the service's execution while executing or after the execution of this Agreement, which must be delivered by the Client as a separate document with this Agreement or delivered through electronic email to the Company Email. The Company will give a format (if applicable) for the submission of the information.
The Course of Actions by the Client:
The Client will receive infringement cases from the Company over an email/mail. The Client must approve a takedown action for infringement cases identified by the Company, or the Company will take actions according to statement 7 in the Company's Course of Actions.
The Client, if so desired, can also remove Content using the dashboard to effectuate enforcement instead of waiting for the service executions, but the Client must be in sync with the Company's team to do so to avoid any confusion or duplication of work.
On occasion, the Company may recommend the Client proceed with specific legal actions (beyond the particular takedown requests handled by the Company). It is the Client's decision whether to follow such a course of action.
If the Client wants to decrease the cycle (if applicable) of a title and/or brand or increase engagement of a title and/or brand or want to increase the number of titles and/or brands during the service period, the appropriate invoice has to be paid by the Client before the service changes are reflected for the title. If the changes are done to an existing title and/or brand, the changes will reflect in the next cycle.
Suppose the Client finds new infringing information which the Company does not identify. In that case, the Client may inform the Company about the infringing links/data by email for necessary actions or submit the information manually using the dashboard.
