Copyright and Trademark Policy
Fanalyst Academy is a learning platform that allows individuals from any place in the world to share educational courses. We are open to hosting many courses on our learning marketplace and our marketplace model means we neither review/edit nor determine the legality of courses posted, submitted or shared on our platform. However, we uphold that instructors must not infringe on the intellectual property rights of others.
As an instructor with Fanalyst Academy, you agree not to infringe on the intellectual rights of others and that as you post any course, you are making a promise that you have the necessary authorisation or rights to use all the content in the course.
For clarity, infringing activity is strongly prohibited on our platform.
This policy addresses actions we take in the event of copyright infringement reports from content owners and trademark owners with respect to the courses on the Fanalyst Academy online platform. Also, it addresses actions we take when a third-party infringes on the courses of our instructors.
Infringement Report by Third-Party
Fanalyst Academy will remove courses from its online platform when they have been reported as infringing by the owner of the original content. In the event where an instructor receives more than two copyright infringement notices, all their courses will be removed from the platform. Fanalyst Academy has the right to terminate the account of an instructor at any point especially when they post content that violates the copyright of others.

Infringement Report from Instructor

In such a case we cannot guarantee the infringing third-party platform will comply with our notices and remove the infringing content.
