DMCA Policy for Van Tharp Institute

At the Van Tharp Institute, we respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect our users to do the same. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), we have adopted the following policy concerning copyright infringement on our website,

Reporting Copyright Infringement

If you believe that your copyrighted material has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and is accessible on our website, please notify our designated DMCA Agent. Your notice must include the following information to be effective under the DMCA:

  1. Identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed. Please provide a description of the work and, if possible, a copy or the URL where your work can be found.
  2. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, along with information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material. Please provide the URL of the infringing material on our website.
  3. Contact information for the complaining party, including an email address, telephone number, and a mailing address, if available.
  4. A statement that the complaining party has 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.
  5. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  6. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Please send your claim to our designated DMCA Agent using our contact form.


If your material has been removed or access to it has been disabled and you believe such removal or disabling was a mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter-notification with us by providing the following information to our DMCA Agent:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Your contact information, including your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
  4. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original notification of alleged infringement or an agent of such person.
  5. Your physical or electronic signature.

Upon receipt of a counter-notification, we may restore the material in question. Please note that if we receive a counter-notification, we will send a copy of it to the original complaining party informing them that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the alleged infringer, the removed material may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notification, at our discretion.

Repeat Infringers

The Van Tharp Institute reserves the right to terminate, in appropriate circumstances, users who are repeat infringers. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that we can maintain a respectful and legal intellectual property environment on
