We have identified this Content with the designation, “No Known Copyright.” This indicates that The Henry Ford knows of no copyright in the Content. We would appreciate if you gave attribution to The Henry Ford as the source of the Content, so long as it has not been adapted or modified. See http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/mark/1.0 for more information about the public domain attribution.

- Digital Millennium Copyright Act: Copyright Matters.
- Pursuant to Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2), notifications of claimed copyright infringement must be submitted to the following Designated Agent:
- To be effective, the notification must be a written communication that includes the following:
- A physical or electronic signature of person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material ("Disputed Content").
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail (email) address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
- 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;
- 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; and
- Any other requirements under U.S. law.
- In response to such a written communication, The Henry Ford may give notice to the person or organization responsible for the posting of the Disputed Content ("User") by means of electronic mail to a User's e-mail address or by written communication sent by first-class mail to a User's address if such address is present in the records of The Henry Ford.
- If a User believes that Disputed Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that the User has the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the Disputed Content, the User may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent for The Henry Ford:
- User's physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the Disputed Content that was removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the Disputed Content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement that the User has a good faith belief that the Disputed Content was lawfully posted to the Site, or was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the Disputed Content; and
- The User's name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that the User consents to the jurisdiction of the federal court having jurisdiction over Dearborn, Michigan, and a statement that the User will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
- If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, The Henry Ford may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that The Henry Ford may replace the removed Disputed Content or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the provider of the Disputed Content, the removed Disputed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in ten to fourteen (10 – 14) business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at The Henry Ford's sole discretion.
