If you receive a notification that a sheetmusic has been removed due a copyright complaint, it means that the sheetmusic's content has been deleted from Pianoshelf at the request of the content's owner. If you want us to forward the information from the Copyright Complaint notification, just reply to the notification to let us know. We'll be happy to send it along (without any personal contact information). If your account receives too many copyright complaints, you may lose the ability to add sheetmusic on Pianoshelf, and your account may be disabled completely. If you believe a sheetmusic was removed in error, you have the option to file a counter-notice by following the steps below. When we receive a valid counter-notice, we will forward a copy to the person who filed the original complaint. If we do not receive notice within 10 business days that the submitter of the original complaint is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the content at issue, we will remove the complaint from your account's record, and we may replace the content that was removed. Note: There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent and/or bad faith submissions. Before submitting a counter-notice, be sure that you are the actual rights holder of the removed content or that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed in error, and understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
