Network Service Providers

NSPs provide Internet access services and facilities for communication across networks, as well as for storage. As such, they are the repository and access point for a high volume of copyright works. Recognising the need to limit the liability of NSPs for infringement committed by their users, the Copyright Act provides NSPs with limited legal liability in copyright infringement suits, subject to the NSP meeting certain stipulated conditions. One of these conditions is that the NSP must designate a representative to receive any notice of infringement served by copyright owners.

Designated representative

To enjoy the limited liability for the infringement of copyright content in the storage of materials or in linking users to materials made available on the Internet, an NSP must designate a representative to receive any notice of infringement served by copyright owners.

All designated representatives together with prescribed information thereof must be notified to IPOS and be listed in the NSPeRegister and maintained by IPOS. To notify IPOS of the designated representative, an NSP can are to complete the form (found below on the page) which can be submitted by hand, mailed, faxed or emailed to IPOS. The administrative fee of $32 will apply.

Please send the forms to:
