    hello guys
    i was jus wondering whether any has got any legal notices from microsoft,dmca ,any other tech companies

    becoz the forum im patnered in had like 3 notices from dmca and they actually pulled down the site for a day

    and microsoft has given its first warning and when a stupid user uploaded the same copyrighted stuff ,that in first case created the problem i thnk they have a court notice against us now

    but im lucky enough to stay in a country where cyber laws are not that much strict

    so guys any one has similar experiences like this

    im especially interested in hearing from guys who have baught blackhat wordpress ,any legal notices to u guys???

    I have got a Legal threat from microsolf company, becouse unfortunately they tracked down my IP adress in one torrent what i made, but i had luck and they couldnt do anything for it, becouse throwed my computer out of window and bought new one.

    Now i havent heard of them since that, but many laws are with them, so you should watch out for them, otherwise you or anyone who is that site owner might spend alot time in jail.

    I have also worked with Thepiratebay community administers, but no longer.

    E: If you host something illegal programs or anything illegal in your site, make sure that no one thinks that those are hosted in your site, put there links of sources where those are "coming" from, otherwise you may have a serious problem.

    I have long experience about illegal programs and how microsolf and other companys are trying to get them down.

    alredy done that....disclaimer, tos and a post saying any objectionable content will be removed within 24 hours after reported

    but they just dont leave us alone ,keep coming back with notices

    what i dont understand is ,we had the same problem with another same kinda forum

    and we had to shut it down because they sent a notice with serious allegations some even threatening to send us to jail

    ...that sux.....threatning 17 year olds about the possibility of going to jail
    we were so fckin scared then we immediatly shut the site deleted our online social networking profile ,copied down important info from our mail and and even discontinued our internet acess and actually threw the routers away (there goes 100$ into waste ), formatted our system ,my friend even threw his hardrive away but i cudnt .....it had my 3 years of lyf in it


    thinking of those days remind me how foolish we were back den
    one positive thing about that was the adrenaline rush we had expecting somebody to know on the door and take us to jail


    missin those days!!

    @empire yah might have to do that that would just escalate our costs a lot ,wich we cant afford
    and we never knew they would be so pissed with us !
    our server bills itself cost us over 300$ a month and we are barely making 400 to 450$ a month thru ads......
    actually we got like 20 to 30% discount on the server since my friend had some pretty good contact with them

    so its just not viable for us to go offshore,

    thats one of reason i have started a thread asking for suggestion on how to improve our earnings


    @gromered: wat u mean u want us to write under the link that it has been taken from particualr source??

    the problem is both the site and content are on the same internet line more of same hosting centre though one is on windows and other is on linux

    i dont think that would make a difference

    well legal stuff dont earn u money anymore!!the chances of earning online are getting thinner and thinner by the day

    consider this: adsense is no longer approving account registrations in my country though they wont officially say it and other ad network dont earn much comapared to adsense

    If you are hosting some illegal videos, programs, anything like that in your websites, microsolf cant do nothing if they are not directly hosted IN YOUR SERVERS/WEBSITE.

    If those things what are illegal is only hosted in your servers, you have problem number 2, becouse you cant add there any links where is the "real" sources.

    Then you need to make a fake source coming from somewhere.

    First thing what you do, if they are also hosted in another server, add there a link where is the real source..

    This is kinda difficult for me to explain, becouse my english is not that good :D

    I hope you undrestood something, but if microsolf track you down, remove your servers, remove your website, format everything, throw your computer out of your window and do not newer again use it, get new internet connection.

    Its funny to see how some people are telling you how you should tell MS to F*** O**, my advice listen to the dmca letter remove the content. Maybe they arent gonna do anything, but if they do you are going to be living in a real shithole for the rest of your life.

    Thats thrue, many people say microsolf to fuck off, we should say thanks to microsolf, becouse they maid us computers and so on, without microsolf we would not have so much things, but still i say whatever i want about microsolf, becouse they are all the time tracking some people and websites down, becouse there is their programs what some people havent bought.

    Only place what i know, that havent still fallen down becouse of microsolf and many others is Thepiratebay, that why i respect them so much :)

    And i like this.
    Copyed from Thepiratebay legal threat site. Its nice to read those letters what microsolf has sent to thepiratebay owners..

    read :) http://thepiratebay.org/legal



    @http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/119950-the-empire.html: You are right about that 450$, i would not risk so much for that low moneys, i would make that risk of going into jail for 20,000$/month.

    If you are more smarter, you delete your computers "MAC" code and then you go to some nice looking coffee place, where is WLAN internet connection and then you also go to proxy site, and then you say show your middle finger to microsolf, and they cant newer track you down, they dont even try to, becouse they dont really care, they just try to get all torrents and all their program to be buyed, that they get money, they dont like that their programs are in all places in internet for free.

    lol.......well we thought 450$ was a huge achievement ......only if i knew about this site before.....things would have been in a better position

    and the reason we cant think about huge amounts of ad money is "we live in a thirld world country where people have just started buying things online (u can say like -same as america around 1995)or so......so people jus dont from affliates etc they even shredder to give their credit card info to legit websites leave alone affliates and other unknown marketers) and also the conversion rates are real low

    and people just dont click ads........lemme give u an example
    consider a person searching for the movie karate kid
    we have that available in our site and he comes to our site
    we put up a clause -complete the survey and get the links

    that person would rather forgo the download links than to fill out the survey(some are scared of virus,others are just too lazy)

    thats the reason a site called lazydesis has become real famous !!

    and we can target audience from west because we are in no way capable of comepeting thier high speed servers.....even if we did our servers will go bust with outages due to heavy video streaming

    and coming to MICROSOFT i used to love them until i got this notice and i now i hate them:p not that much though i still use their products
    lol i forgot to mention steve balmer when on s trip to here has said
    question:what steps are taking to counter the rampant piracy in india and to improve ur sales
    answer: i dont mind people using pirated copies of our products and my aim is to make sure that they use microsoft products even though it is pirated

    Are you hosted in USA? You don't need to comply with DMCA requests if you are hosted outside USA. The worst they could do is get your host to shut your site down.

    You are not making much because you are targeting the wrong audience. Poor people means poor conversions. Affiliate marketing, CPA offers, Adsense won't work well with them. The best you could do is implement a PTC model where instead of paying the visitors you let them download the file and then rent out your traffic service.

    You can't delete the mac address, you can change it. But thats of no use because anyone outside your local network does not have access to it.
