Do you ignore DMCA requests? Print

A question we sometimes receive is, "How do you handle DMCA requests?" and, "Will you suspend my server if you receive a DMCA take down notice?"

Websites that exist only to distribute copyrighted content that you do not own, create or have the right to re-distribute is strictly prohibited. These are easy to spot because within a few days of deploying a server our abuse inbox is full of DMCA complaints regarding your IP. We're not the provider for that sort of thing.

Sites that get a complaint every now and then are fine, so long as we're able to reach you when a need to remove someone else's copyrighted or protected content/media.

We're a US based business, and although we have a large presence in the Netherlands it should be noted the rules apply there as well.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this.
