    Hi guys,
    recently I have set up a few autoblogs running on wordpress. Yesterday I received email from some guy threatning he's gonna sue me for copyright infringement and defamation of something. Apparently his content got posted on one of my autoblogs.

    So I have a question for bhw autobloggers - what do you do to protect your identity, or in case you get caught how do you defend yourself?

    I heard namecheap offers a free whois protection, so I'm gonna try it but thats propably no yet good enough protection.

    yes i am always using whois protection for my domains.

    You can try translate function for unique content.

    I dont understand why you said "thats probably not yet good protection" Please clarify. You mean there may be some foot prints that reveal your real identity?

    Well, whois is one important thing that needs to be secured, namecheap protection should do the trick.

    Another thing is bulletproof hosting, now all my autoblogsd are hosted on my own server and it can be traced to me, thats not good.

    Those two are the risks I know about. But there might be something else that needs to be done in order to protect my identity, so I was thinking more experienced BHW bloggers could help me.

    Just do the whois stuff.. and just ignore his threats.. you can just take it down and say sorry a user submitted it!
