Please provide the following information: (i) an electronic or physical signature of the owner (or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner) of the copyrighted work; (ii) a description of the copyrighted work that is claimed to have been infringed upon; (iii) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the copyrighted work; (iv) your address, telephone number, and e-mail address; (v) a statement by you of your good-faith belief that the use in question is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the owner of the copyright or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA allows you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements implemented by the DMCA. Notices and counter-notices may be sent to our registered copyright agent at the following postal address or email address:

These Terms and the relationship between you and CodeStream, Inc. are governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
WE WILL MAKE EVERY REASONABLE EFFORT TO RESOLVE ANY DISAGREEMENTS THAT YOU HAVE WITH US. IF THOSE EFFORTS FAIL, AS A CONDITION TO USING THE WEBSITE AND THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES (AS DEFINED ABOVE), AND ANY CAUSE OF ACTION THAT YOU MAY BRING IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY, ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO, OR CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH THESE TERMS, THE WEBSITE OR THE SERVICES, SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION ("AAA") AND CONDUCTED BEFORE A SINGLE ARBITRATOR PURSUANT TO THE APPLICABLE RULES AND PROCEDURES ESTABLISHED BY AAA ("RULES AND PROCEDURES"). YOU AGREE FURTHER THAT: (A) THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE HELD AT A LOCATION DETERMINED BY AAA PURSUANT TO THE RULES AND PROCEDURES (PROVIDED THAT SUCH LOCATION IS REASONABLY CONVENIENT FOR YOU), OR AT SUCH OTHER LOCATION AS MAY BE MUTUALLY AGREED UPON BY YOU AND CODESTREAM, INC.; (B) THE ARBITRATOR SHALL APPLY NEW YORK LAW CONSISTENT WITH THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND APPLICABLE STATUTES OF LIMITATIONS, AND SHALL HONOR CLAIMS OF PRIVILEGE RECOGNIZED AT LAW; (C) THERE SHALL BE NO AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS; ARBITRATION CAN DECIDE ONLY YOUR AND/OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS; AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED; (D) IN THE EVENT THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE COSTS OF ARBITRATION WILL BE PROHIBITIVE AS COMPARED TO THE COSTS OF LITIGATION, WE WILL AGREE TO PAY AS MUCH OF YOUR FILING AND HEARING FEES IN CONNECTION WITH THE ARBITRATION AS THE ARBITRATOR DEEMS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ARBITRATION FROM BEING COST-PROHIBITIVE; AND (E) WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SUBPART (C) ABOVE, IF ANY PART OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION IS DEEMED TO BE INVALID, UNENFORCEABLE OR ILLEGAL, OR OTHERWISE CONFLICTS WITH THE RULES AND PROCEDURES ESTABLISHED BY AAA, THEN THE BALANCE OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT AND SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS TERMS AS IF THE INVALID, UNENFORCEABLE, ILLEGAL OR CONFLICTING PROVISION WERE NOT CONTAINED HEREIN.
