    Today I got one email stated one domain infringed copyright. That email asked me to confirm to stop usage of the domain by 11-12-2010. However, I just got that doc today (11-23-2010). Then I removed all my content under the domain. And sent email to them about removing website content and will not use the domain anymore.

    That will be Ok for such issue? Or passed deadline, that will cause legal problem?

    I am new to this. What's your thought?

    Thanks.

    I've had a couple of cease and desist notices. Usually they are trying to scare you off.

    BUT unless you have a cheap lawyer well versed in internet law you have to do something about it.

    I usually water down what they have a problem with and just don't respond to them. I've never had anyone go any further.

    Mine have usually been about using the word "official" - so I just dropped that and they went away.

    If it were content that you infringed, it should be per file basis and not the whole site. Unless you violated some brand on your domain name.

    Thanks for your information.

    After communicating with copyright owner, the domain case is resolved.

    I am very thankful.
