By mail: Copyright Agent (DMCA) c/o AMD Law Department, 7171 Southwest Parkway, M/S B100.4, Austin, TX 78735, USA.

Counter-Notification to Claimed Copyright Infringement:

You can file a counter-notification with AMD’s designated Agent at the address listed above or at DMCA@amd.com if a notice of copyright infringement has been filed against you. In such counter-notification you must include the following information:

Therefore, you agree that neither this forum, nor any person or entity associated with it, will be held responsible for the contents, accuracy, completeness, or validity of any information posted therein.

We have the ability to edit and/or remove objectionable messages at the sole discretion of our moderators and/or AMD.  Any user who believes that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately. Upon receipt of such notification, we will make every effort to take such action as we deem necessary within a reasonable period of time. Since this is a manual process, you are advised that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

These Forums reserve the right to edit or delete any message for any reason whatsoever, at our sole discretion.  You agree that you are solely responsible for the content of your messages, and that you will indemnify and hold harmless AMD, the moderators, Khoros (the software manufacturer) and their agents and employees with respect to any claim based upon the appearance and/or transmission of your post(s).

In the event of any complaint or legal action arising from any post by you, AMD reserves the right to reveal your identity and any other information we may know about you.
