Video Submission Guidelines
The IIA’s Audit Channel is an online portal for the internal audit community to post video clips related to relevant internal audit issues. We value our users’ insights and ideas, but in order to maintain an atmosphere of productive dialogue, all videos posted to this site must adhere to the following guidelines:
- Use respectful language. No profanity, hate speech, or personal attacks are permitted. Criticism of video or comments are welcome, but such comments must be informed, constructive, and respectful.
- Videos must be commercial-free, not camouflaged advertisements for products, services, or websites. A video is considered promotional if it is geared toward selling a product or service. Videos of a promotional nature will be directed to the Audit Channel’s Sales Department for further contact regarding placement in the Partner Channel.
- Comments on videos must remain on topic. Keep comments relevant to the video or to previous comments.
- Videos will be reviewed for appropriate internal audit content that contributes to the education of the profession. A video submission may be rejected if it contains content that is inappropriate or inflammatory.
These guidelines will be enforced at the sole discretion of The IIA. Questions or concerns regarding these guidelines can be addresssed by emailing email@example.com

Copyright Infringement Procedure
The Institute of Internal Auditors (“The IIA”) values the copyrights of all participants of The Audit channel.tv website (the “Website”). The IIA takes claims of copyright infringement very seriously, so if you believe there has been copyright infringement, you must file a copyright infringement notice by written communication to The IIA’s designated agent at:
Designated Agent: David Polansky
Address: 247 Maitland Ave
City State Zip: Altamonte Springs, FL 32701
For The IIA to properly address the alleged copyright infringement, the written communication must include substantially the following:
(i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
(ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
(iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material.
(iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
(v) A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
(vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
See Section 512(c)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DCMA”) or consult with your attorney to confirm these requirements.
**Please do not knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing because you may liable for any resulting damages under Section 512(f) of the DCMA.**
Counter Infringement Notice
If you do not believe that the materials you posted are infringing, you may submit a counter copyright infringement notification. To be effective, you must send a counter notification to:
Designated Agent: David Polansky
Address: 247 Maitland Ave
City State Zip: Altamonte Springs, FL 32701
The counter notification must include substantially the following:
(i) A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.
(ii) Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
(iii) A statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
(iv) The subscriber’s name, address, and telephone number
(v) A statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber’s address is outside of the United States, for the judicial district in which The IIA is located, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification.
Once receiving a counter infringement notice, The IIA will promptly notify the original claimant of the counter notification. In providing such notice, The IIA may include the name you included in the counter infringement notice and you consent that The IIA may provide the contact information you provided to the original claimant. In providing the counter infringement notice, you agree that The IIA has the right to share such information as allowed by law.
After The IIA provides your counter infringement notice to the original claimant, the original claimant has ten business days to file a copyright lawsuit in federal court. If the original claimant does not notify The IIA that it has filed a lawsuit within ten business days of the counter infringement notice days, The IIA may reinstate the materials to the Website.
**Please do not knowingly materially misrepresent that that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, because you may liable for any resulting damages under Section 512(f) of the DCMA.**
