Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon BRANDTWIST actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident.
