' 512(c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
If FMS receives such a counter notification, and FMS determines that it intends to restore access to the materials, a copy will be sent to You notifying You that access to the materials will be restored within ten (10) business days. Access will be restored between the tenth (10th) and fourteenth (14th) business day after FMS receives a counter notification unless You inform us that You have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the individual who made the posting from engaging in infringing activity on FMS's network and servers. If FMS determines that it will not restore access to the materials, You will not receive any further notifications.
