Information for users
Users who have posted or made available any Content (as defined in our Terms of Service) on or through our properties or services should familiarise themselves with the matters set out above under the heading "Information for intellectual property rights owners".
In particular, where we have removed or disabled access to any material pursuant to a notice of infringement alleging a Singapore Copyright Act Infringement, we will first send a brief notification to the user to inform him of this removal and such other information (including information on how to send a Compliant Counter-Notice) as may be useful to the user.
We may also, in accordance with our Terms of Service (including this Policy) and in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, disable and/or terminate (whether partially or completely) without notice the accounts of users who may be infringing the intellectual property rights (including but not limited to copyrights and trade marks) of others.
In particular, we will terminate the Service Accounts of users whom we have determined to be repeat infringers. The "Service Account" of a user is the account of that user in respect of a particular service or property operated or provided by us. For instance, where we have determined that a user has infringed a third party's intellectual property rights in the course of his/her use of our Yahoo Mail service for Indonesia, the Service Account that may be terminated will be his/her account for our Yahoo Mail service for Indonesia, but not his/her other Service Accounts (e.g. Yahoo Messenger).
In determining whether a user is a repeat infringer, we will generally adopt the following procedure (as may be applied or amended from time to time in our sole discretion):
