Copyright


Twiddle respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask and expect for our users to do the same and take this seriously.

Our users may find through our App sound effects and samples of musical works for making creative short video stories for their personal use and entertainment. Our App makes no profit out of this. We want our users to be creative and enjoy our platform whilst benefiting artists since we believe that Twiddle is a new gateway to promote content and gain new fans, and we prompt users to purchase the full versions of the sample tunes from third party sources (with which we are not affiliated). Our goal is to evolve the platform to a community hub for upcoming and established artists to easily submit and promote their creations and artwork while they enjoy our cooperation and support in providing to them new audiences. Along these lines we are working in preparing to extend the availability of music and sounds by creating deals with record labels and artists.

We reserve the right to remove or disable material upon notice from an intellectual property owner or their agent, or/and upon our belief in good faith that it is infringing the intellectual property of a third party by being made available via the Service. We also reserve the right to remove User Content uploaded by Users that have received a single notification of claimed infringement, as well as to terminate immediately a User Account of any “repeat infringer” that have received more than two takedown notices compliant with the provisions of 17 U.S.C. § 512 with respect to such User Content.

Artists should take notice that we are merely a hosting service for User Content and we have no control over our users’ usage of it. Any user of our App is solely responsible for the use of the platform, and the use of its contents and its distribution, in accordance to our Terms of Use. If you believe a User of the Service violates the Terms of Use or/and uses content beyond fair use and infringes your copyright, we recommend contacting the relevant user directly and attempting to reach a mutually agreeable solution. If this does not result in a satisfactory outcome, please report it to us via email to copyright@twiddle.me. You understand that we may forward your notification to the user of the allegedly infringing content for a counter statement.

Should any artist feel differently, Twiddle provides the following procedure for filing a “Notification of Claimed Infringement” claiming removal of all content adequately proven to be intellectual property of the applicant. Upon approval of said application we will remove the specific embodiment from all the users’ creations or the entire creation temporarily or permanently with or without notice to the user and we may or may not restore it at any point, only with the artist’s written consent. The procedure to follow is in compliance with the requirements set forth at 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3), and has to include substantially the following:


  1. The applicant’s email address, a phone number, and a physical address, so that we and/or the uploader of your work can reach you.
  2. Identify the specific material that is claimed to be infringing and that is to be removed, and information reasonably sufficient to let us locate that material.
  3. A detailed description of your copyright work, and the URL or other identification of your allegedly infringing work.
  4. A personal statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained is not authorized by the copyright owner or its agent or the law, and you believe its use or hosting goes beyond fair-use.
  5. A statement made under penalty of perjury that you are the copyright owner or you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner, and that the information in the notification is full and accurate.
  6. Have the above statements carry your physical or electronic signature (which may be a scanned copy) and your full name (not company name).



Please send the above preferably by email to copyright@twiddle.me, or otherwise by post to the following postal address. All information submitted may be forwarded to the poster of the content, or otherwise made public in any way.
