This policy lists our requirements for notice of copyright infringement and for responses to such a notice if you or your materials are accused.

Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/laws/ for details. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice.

Net Texts was founded in 2010 with a mission to improve education for both teachers and students. Mike Messner, along with business partner Paul Shiverick, believed the current education system called for some much needed innovation and looked to replace expensive, printed textbooks with engaging, easy to use tablets. The idea was to develop an iPad app and a content-rich Website that organizes and delivers the wealth of Open Educational Resources available on the Internet.
For the 2011-12 school year, the company tested out this concept with 6 schools in Atlanta. The 8th grade classes put aside their textbooks and relied on Net texts courses, delivered 1:1 on iPads for each teacher and student.
As the year progressed, Net Texts took many visits to Atlanta and spent a lot of time with the teachers and students. They offered invaluable feedback that was used to improve the system for a broad release in 2012. We are happy to say that the Atlanta pilot program was a huge success and there will be nearly 40 schools throughout the country using the Net texts system during the 2012-13 school year!
