A physical or electronic signature of a person who is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; and
Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed upon, or if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, then it must include a representative list of such works at that site; and
