Just wondering how everyone handles DMCA notices? In regards to both sending them and recieving them.
Do you ever Legally fight back against DMCA notices or send DMCA notices?
A while back, some fool exactly duplicated my site and content.
I got his contact information through a domain whois and sent him an e-mail instructing him to immediately remove the material. He refused to comply, and when I followed up with a phone call he hung up on me. I ended up serving a notification to his webhost and it was shortly thereafter disabled.
I handle them like most complaints, investigate, see for myself and then of course remove them if infringing. So far I never had to do the opposite of fighting back.
Sending them wise, I've only done one recently.
Recently I got DMCA complaint for image taken from some travel site with instruction that I remove image and that I put given path to 404.
They also send the copy to my host.
Maybe 5 minutes later I complied with their terms, sent notification mail with my excuses
also I sent copy of the email to my host...
They thanked for cooperations and that was it.
