  1. Introduction

WhereWeChat is committed to upholding intellectual property rights and complying with copyright laws globally. This Copyright Compliance Policy outlines our procedures for addressing copyright infringement complaints and provides guidelines for users of the WhereWeChat platform.


  1. Applicable Laws and International Standards

WhereWeChat operates in accordance with copyright laws from major jurisdictions, including but not limited to the United States (U.S.), the United Kingdom (U.K.), Nigeria, the European Union (EU), and other relevant international copyright treaties and conventions such as the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Copyright Treaty.


  1. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Compliance

WhereWeChat adheres to the provisions of the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) (17 U.S.C. § 512), which governs the procedures for reporting copyright infringement and filing counter-notices. Under the DMCA:


  • WhereWeChat promptly responds to valid DMCA takedown notices and processes counter-notices.
  • Users whose content is removed due to copyright complaints have the right to submit counter-notices to seek reinstatement of their material.


  1. Nigerian Copyright Compliance

WhereWeChat complies with Nigerian copyright laws, including the Nigerian Copyright Act (Cap C28 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004), which provides protection for literary, musical, artistic, and other intellectual works. This includes respecting the rights of copyright owners and addressing copyright infringement in accordance with Nigerian legal requirements.


  1. European Union (EU) Copyright Compliance

WhereWeChat also complies with EU copyright laws, including the EU Copyright Directive (Directive 2019/790), which harmonizes certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the digital single market. This includes provisions on online content sharing platforms and the liability of service providers for copyright infringement.
