At Western Sun Foundation (a.k.a. Goose Community,, GC and/or WSF) we respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect our users to do the same. We have adopted and implemented this copyright policy ("Copyright Policy") in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA").

It is our policy to respond to any notification of alleged copyright infringement that complies with the DMCA and, in our sole discretion, to suspend or terminate the accounts of repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances.

If you are a copyright holder, or its authorized representative, and you believe in good faith that content residing or accessible on or through (or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates) infringes on your copyrighted work, please send us notice of copyright infringement that includes the following information:

  • An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest (typing your full legal name is sufficient);

  • A clear description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
  • A description of, or link to where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the site;
  • Your contact information, including mailing address, telephone number, and email address;
  • A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
  • A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.

Please note that, under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
