- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works in the OpenPlay software are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit OpenPlay to locate the material.
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit OpenPlay to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted.
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

9. Other Provisions
Governing Law and Venue
OpenPlay and you agree and acknowledge that the worldwide scope of the Internet makes the choice of jurisdiction difficult to balance. Therefore, both parties accept a “mutually inconvenient” jurisdiction for choice of law and venue, but one in which the judicial system is familiar with digital matters. Accordingly, OpenPlay and you hereby agree that this User Agreement and all disputes arising from it or any other matters between OpenPlay and you are governed by the laws of the State of California without taking into account its principles and case law relating to conflicts of laws. OpenPlay and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in Los Angeles, California. You waive all claims to the defense of inconvenient venue and any related defense.
Some jurisdictions might not accept such waivers. If you are in any such jurisdiction you are not authorized to use the OpenPlay Platform. Please contact us immediately at email@example.com to discuss alternatives.
Enforceability of Terms
If a court determines that some terms of this User Agreement are not enforceable that will not affect other terms. They will still be enforceable.
OpenPlay and you agree that other remedies might not be adequate and, accordingly, agree that OpenPlay shall have rights in equity for injunctive and other equitable relief, in addition to any and all other remedies OpenPlay may have under this or other agreements with you or at law.
Limitation of Waivers
OpenPlay does not waive any of its rights or remedies because it does little or nothing when you do something that breaches, or may breach, this User Agreement. It does not mean that you have no liability for that action (or inaction), that OpenPlay cannot exercise whatever remedies it may have or that you can do it again.
OpenPlay is granting certain rights to you, and accordingly you may not assign this User Agreement or any of its rights or obligations without the prior written consent of OpenPlay. Any attempted assignment without such prior written consent shall be void and will be considered a material breach of this User Agreement.
OpenPlay can provide you notice by email or by other reasonable means, including notice on the Site. If you wish to contact OpenPlay, then you can do so by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Term and Termination
This User Agreement shall continue in effect until it is terminated by either OpenPlay or you. Please note that termination does not mean that all of its terms are no longer in effect (as described below). Once this User Agreement is terminated, access to accounts and most features and functionality will terminate. Certain provisions of this Agreement shall survive termination as follows: the restrictions on use of content and provisions regarding intellectual property shall survive indefinitely; the indemnification obligations shall survive for a period of five years from the date of termination; OpenPlay’s disclaimer of warranties and representations and limitations of liability shall survive indefinitely; and terms of this User Agreement related to remedies and dispute resolution and other terms appropriate for enforcement of the terms of this User Agreement shall survive for an indefinite period.
