    Hello
    I have heard that if i copy content from other sites and host it at my site which is hosting in usa server then in case if anyone complaigns dmca creates a safe harbour to protect isp's so i will get some reasonable amount of time to remove that content ( complaint content by copyright owner). Correct?
    That is why i am looking to host my sites on usa web server.

    AFAIK The Safe Harbour protects the service provider (ISP/HOST) it doesn't protect you. If they receive a takedown notice they can take your site down/suspend your account, I think they usually inform you and request you immediately remove any copyrighted material. You are given the opportunity to challenge the notice.

    IMO, you should just forget it, you have asked these questions too many times. If you have the balls then do it or consult a legal professional and get proper advice. The alternative is to start a site with offshore bulletproof hosting that CAN'T be traced back to your REAL identity.

    If you are on a US server on US property you are required to follow DMCA, which generally give you plenty of time to respond and comply. For instance, I had an email sent to me last week that notified me of copyright material, I gave my client 24/7 to respond and comply or the material was going to be removed. Its a pretty simple and harmless process as long as you dont fight it.

    Dont see the point of copy cats, why not re event Not copy .

    There so many talented people you can hire to get any job done or learn your self why copy in the first place?

    Anyway , any american server can not bypass
    Copywright laws .(( dmca protection

    But that also means if you hire a uk webserver becouse your using it in America you are still
    In trouble via dmca

    According to uk laws , and i am sure amairca laws , you are responsible of the internet where you are at the time, of using the computer to access the internet , so hence your in uk and controlling a server in africa you are still respnsable for your actions by law.

    That the uk version , maybe amarica differs , but in court i dont think so , you are responsible of your actions where you are sitting on the internet conected to a computer the law is the law.....


    This does not mean it can not be bypassed via sever owners , or there heavly written law polices of there own business , where there not willing to give any information over under a human rights act , that the business of the server owners and there business guidelines .

    You can get a 3rd world vps deal but also get sued using that server for dmca if the server owner is willing to give everthink to the dmca but you no that wont happen becouse that the reason your hiring the service in the first place , the only reason a 3rd world server is quite secuire becouse most countrys wont go to the data server to investigate the siuation and with all the red tape bye time they get there severs already move diffrent location so a 3rd world server is very safe but dosent mean it morally right to hire......

    Trust me , if you are investigated for anythink online wise and found to hiring a 3rd world server your automatically classed as a suspect
    Doing somethink wrong , people that hire such servers are looked upon as bad unfortunately.....

    If your looked as hiding anythink online you are automatlcly seen as a person doing wrong like it or not....


    That it my opionion done sorry for long post only my opionion
