Designation of Copyright Agent
While Kate.net never uses unauthorized copyrighted materials from others in any of its works (Kate.net uses only its own, self-created material or material for which a software or image use license is properly and legally obtained), if you believe that your copyright has been infringed, please send a notice to Kate, and your claim will be addressed in a timely manner. If Kate.net has purchased rights to an image from a stock image service, and that image service has improperly been distributing your image, please let Kate know, and your image will be removed from the work in question, even if Kate.net has appropriately paid money to the stock art service for use of the image, and even if your documented (please provide proof of documentation of your correspondence with the stock art company) dispute with the stock art service has not been rectified. That is how strongly Kate.net believes in copyrights!
