You have to remove the content, or the host will ban your account
Change the website to a offshore hosting company. They cant catch you there.
That is solid advice and at the same time put a whoisguard on your URL so they cannot continue to trace and contact you
What were you hosting.
Your website is a TV show site which embeds link from youtube or megavideo?
What is it? Please let us know
Ya I just link to sites that have TV shows. I registered through domains by proxy with godaddy thats who sent the email will they still be able to track me down? What is a good offshore host?
Any registrar will release your details, even with whoisguard, if they are given a court order.
Get offshore quickly.
Don't waste your time, just remove the content (for now). Then get off-shore hosting and start over
It's a scam. Don't fall for it, it's amazing what competition does to people. So weak.
How the hell do you know?
Is this letter the third one you have received for the same issue?
Mallory.Levitt through the CBS main switchboard 212-975-4321
Unless you're involved in some serious and blatant copyright infringement, most likely nothing will come of it, CBS probably sends out hundreds or thousands of these emails a week, imagine the legal costs of taking each infringement to court..
That being said, if you're going to continue making money in whatever you're doing that involves CBS you should register the domain in a fake name, paid for by a fake paypal or moneybookers account or with an anonymous gift card. That "domain privacy" or whois guard isn't worth the time it takes to check the little box during signup. In the event they file the simplest of disputes against you all your personal information will be revealed for anyone who comes asking.
I learned the hard way after I was involved in a frivilous copyright infringement lawsuit filed by a company with deep pockets. Even if its a gray area it's best to remain anonymous because they have the money, the lawyers and the means to find you and harrass you until you take down your site and will try to get you to sign court papers stating you maliciously infringed on their intellectual property (so the next time you do it they can file another lawsuit and win damages) The moral of the story: NEVER register a domain in your real name.
I found this online, sounds like your letter?! May be you can email that website owner and ask him what he did about it?! Just a thought...

Should it be entrusted?
I don't believe in this.What is the farther result anyway?
