- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the relevant matter;
- a description of the content which we have removed, including the URL on which the content was located on the Artsider site;
- your address, telephone number, and email address;

Before providing such notice, you should be aware that we are obliged to inform the complainant that you have provided that notice (and provide a copy of your counter-notice to them) and that their next step would be to take court action against you in the United States.
