Should The GeekFind receives your counter-notification, but your design does not comply with The GeekFind Artist’s Agreement and/or the Terms of Use, The GeekFind may inform you that we are unable to reinstate your work. In some circumstances we may also request further information in order to determine whether the work in question can be reinstated.

In many circumstances, The GeekFind will forward your counter-notification (including the contact information in Section 3.4.3) to the complaining party or authorized agent thereof. At that time the complaining party may take legal action against you in Federal District Court. If after 14 days the complaining party has not taken legal action against you, you may contact The GeekFind to request that we reinstate your work. If your work otherwise complies with The GeekFind Artist’s Agreement and/or Terms of Use, we may reinstate your work at that time.
