    If i were in your situation, i would just delete everything and wait to see what will happen.
    Since you used your real info in your cloudflare account even if you move to an offshore server you can still be in trouble since the website is online, just backup your entire website and videos too and shut the website for some time. You could continue with a new doamin this time without cloudflare and a real offshore webhost.
    This is a leason to be learned.

    Wish you all the best and stay safe :)

    Man I thought you live in cali, you can relax and dont give two shits about it. To get to you legaly it would cost a lot of cash and its very likely they dont even know youre half a World away as cloudflare routes all data via they center in california and Chicago and when they look up the IP it points there. The moment they realize what is going on case dropped. Look at it from their point, he probably invested few bucks to serve soubpena, hoping its gonna scare you and it always does but think about it. Its legal shit storm that would have to involve FBI to get to you and i cant imagine it happens. You would have to be selling Cocaine with that jav porn.

    Even though they probably can't touch you personally because of where your living, if your domain is a .com, .net, .org they can take it down easily if they wanted to. They just have to dmca you for the content, have you not respond, then they go to icann with it. Easier to just delete their content, once you find out who it is for sure.

    Cloudflare is the one that was served, they are simply following their privacy policy and forwarding it on to you. They will turn over everything the subpoena requested. At that point, the owner and their law firm will have to decide if that is enough information to find you, and is it worth the trouble to sue you. Just because you are in Taiwan doesn't mean they can't sue you there, assuming they would have a valid suit under Taiwanese laws. They can hire an attorney there just as easily as they did in California.

    Most copyright holders simply want to protect their rights and their monetization of the content. Take it down and move on and that will probably be the end of it.

    Of course, they could also decide to make an example of you and chase you to the ends of the earth. My bet is they just want it to stop. I once received a Cease and Desist to a Facebook page. I simply said I would remove it and never do it again and they were happy.

    I would archive the website and then completly remove it...
    Lay low for a period of time and start new project. When things settle, buy new domain, and extract the archive on new OS host...

    Exactly! I think the worst thing he could do at this point is leave the content up. He needs to take it down immediately and get this over with. Its easy for a company to keep coming after you when you are actively stealing from them. If you stop, they really don't have much of a reason.

    All you guys trying to inject fear at some little piece of paper. I bet you guys start crying when you get a counter notice on xvids. Real men stand up and take the risk with shit like this. If you know You covered your footprint..it's literally a fuck you to the piece of paper. Let them chase.

    Interesting situation. I wonder what cloudflare's actual follow up policy is. In the scenario that you ignore everyone do they just stop caching your domain, blacklist it and shut down your account? I've ran sites that without a cdn caching them, they would of instantly melted. Just something to consider if your site's using a shit ton of bandwidth. Cloudflare says you're fucked, so even if you do remove the content and not reply to them, if it's policy to shut you down, not going to end well. Strategic exit into the shadows for now might be best, or maybe something sneaky like redirecting all jap traffic to a 404 page or one saying the sites shut down lol.

    So many idiots replying to this thread.

    Depending on the extent of your piracy, they can very well have you detained in another country and then arrested by Japanese authorities if they track you down.

    They do this all the time when it comes to manga sharing websites.

    Just do a Google search and you will see for yourself.

    As a few already stated above, Cloudfare will give them any info they have on you if you don’t respond.

    What they do after that probably depends on how much content you have.

    If that info is useless to them then you’re probably safe. But I would take the site down for sure.

    Sounds like playing with fire to try and keep the content online.
