Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against The Patriot Network or the person who has posted allegedly infringing content, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in ten business days or more after receipt of the Counter-Notice.
The Patriot Network Policy Regarding Repeat Infringers

The Patriot Network does not condone or tolerate copyright infringement or any violation of the intellectual property rights of The Patriot Network or of others. The Patriot Network reserves the right to terminate the access and/or use privileges of any person who has been determined to be a 'repeat infringer' of the copyrights of The Patriot Network or others. The Patriot Network reserves the right to define the criteria by which The Patriot Network will determine that a person is a 'repeat infringer.' In the event that repeat infringer' is defined by statute, law, or regulation as applicable to 17 USC § 512, The Patriot Network will adopt that definition as a minimum standard. Without limiting The Patriot Network’s right to define 'repeat infringer,' as a general rule, The Patriot Network will define a 'repeat infringer' as any person or entity about whom The Patriot Network has received two or more DMCA Notices of Alleged Infringement. The Patriot Network will take into account all relevant facts and circumstances when determining whether or not termination of access and/or use privileges of a 'repeat infringer' is appropriate.

REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PATRIOT NETWORK TERMINATES ACCESS AND/OR USE PRIVILEGES OF ANY PERSON OR ENTITY, 'REPEAT INFRINGER' OR OTHERWISE, THE PATRIOT NETWORK IN NO WAY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY AVAILABLE REMEDY AT LAW OR IN EQUITY AGAINST COPYRIGHT INFRINGERS OR ANY OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS VIOLATORS, NOR WILL THE PATRIOT NETWORK INDEMNIFY OR PROVIDE LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO ANY ALLEGED INFRINGER IN ANY ACTION ARISING FROM THE ALLEGED INFRINGERS USE OF ANY THE PATRIOT NETWORK WEBSITE OR SERVICE, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY DESCRIBED IN THIS NOTICE.
