You can submit a DMCA Notification if you are a copyright owner or authorised to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right under copyright that is allegedly infringed.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD ONLY SUBMIT A NOTIFICATION IF YOU OWN OR CONTROL THE COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL THAT IS CLAIMED TO BE INFRINGING BECAUSE UNDER 17 U.S.C $ 512(F), ANY PERSON WHO KNOWINGLY MATERIALLY MISREPRESENTS THAT MATERIAL IS INFRINGING MAY BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES. When a copyright owner’s work is purportedly being infringed on or through a service provider’s service, the copyright owner may send a notification of claimed infringement (often referred to as a “takedown notice”) to the service provider’s designated agent. Horus is registered with the US Copyright Office as a service provider and designated agent (as required under DMCA 17 USC 512).
The designated agent for Horus is as follows:
