You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with the procedures provided in this subsection for reporting a claimed copyright infringement, your notice may not be valid under the DMCA. See 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3) for further details.
If you believe that your content that was removed (or access was disabled to) is not infringing, or that you have authorization from the rightful copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to law, to post and use the allegedly infringing material in your posted content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification or description of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the original location where the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;

Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the material provider, member or user, the removed material may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at CrossFit’s sole discretion. See 17 U.S.C. 512(g)(3) for further details.
