Ocula will promptly investigate and remove copyright infringing materials from the Ocula website in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") if properly notified that uploaded materials infringe a third party's copyright. In addition, Ocula may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate the accounts of repeat copyright infringers.
