    If a website hosts pirated contents and the companies or a court contact the registrar to take down the domain or take any steps against this, they would do it. Is there anyway to prevent your website from going down because of this? Do we have to purchase a domain from a different registrar? Can you please inform me about a registrar who don't care about DMCA, piracy etc.?

    There's no such protection from ignoring DMCA everyone will tell you they can protect you up until the FBI is involved.

    Take a look at .ru or .su domains and Russian hosting.

    Offshore hosting and make it appear as if you are complying with DMCA.

    In recent months everyone seems to be moving to .ws domains. Western Samoa is probably take a while to respond when seizing domains. I also believe that registrations aren't handled by verisign which is important. Most sites seem to 301 to new jurisdictions every so often.

    Well there's a few things u need to understand about DMCA before u think about a solution.

    DMCA protects service providers from 3rd party customers uploading files that infringe on Copyrights, so the best solution is ....DRUMM ROLL PLEASE!!

    Don't use your own service :) read between the lines.

    Well! there are no solutions, But there's this thing called "Plausable deniability"


    Plausible deniability actually is a legal concept. It refers to lack of evidence proving a allegation. Standards of of proof vary in civil and criminal cases. In civil cases, the standard of proof is "more likely so than not" whereas in a criminal matter, the standard is "beyond a reasonable doubt" If your opponent lacks incontrovertible proof (evidence) of their allegation, you can "plausibly deny" the allegation even though it may be true.

    You think Kim dotcom had "User Controlled encryption" built into mega because he wanted to protect the users LMAO! sorry NO! he did it to protect his own ass, the function
    increases "Plausible deniability" this way if someone was to seize his servers he can say " I don't know what on the servers the data is encrypted and we can't decrypt it"

    Anyway to answer your question, if and when u get big enough you will at some point in time be sued you just have to have your ducks to be able to say "I don't know" or yeah and never under any circumstances use your own service..........EVER!!!!!!

    If you upload anything that infringes on someones copyright well now your not DMCA compliant, because you know you don't have permission to use the material you yourself uploaded, and also you need to follow cases on this matter you need to know the law before you try to tamper with it.
