If you elect to send Linkerz a counter notification, please contact Linkerz and submit the following in writing:
A physical or electronic signature;
Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled. Providing URLs to the applicable page(s) on the Website is the best way to help Linkerz locate where the material was quickly;
A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.

Upon receipt of a counter notification, Linkerz will forward it to the party who submitted the original copyright infringement claim.
