    Yesterday I received this email from a clickbank admin.

    Cease and Desist:
    Dear sir/madam,

    We've established that you're guilty of Copyright Infringement and therefore we've started a cease and desist procedure. This basically means that we offer you to hand over your domain name and hosting in order to avoid legal procedures.

    I have a website about Internet and marketing, and you can download everything for free.

    What can I do.

    any suggestions

    You're leaving out the biggest part...

    WHAT DID YOU DO??

    What's your domain they want? They want your hosting too??

    I'd just tell them you'll move the domain to a parking website and sell it expires.

    Or move to offshore hosting/use secure domains.

    How did they find you to email you?

    well that's def why lol.

    Yeah, get rid of that domain.

    Transfer the site to another domain, one that is whois secure, and host it offshore.

    When your hosting gets the letters, they throw them away!

    Pretty straight forward really. They caught you distributing copyright protected items that you don't own for free on your site. You fail.

    The email itself seems a little suspect. You may want to verify that it actually came from CB and not some pissed off affiliate. Seems a little short and sweet to be an actual legal notice, unless you paraphrased it.

    In all the C&D's I've recieved I've certainly never had:

    "This basically means that we offer you to hand over your domain name and hosting in order to avoid legal procedures."

    Doesn't sound right. But to be honest, as its only a .info just give it up unless you have a ton of traffic...

    I said the samething, most legal notices actually have the section of there TOS in the notice which they violated, but like u said unless he gave us his version of the legal notice, then who's to know.

    Holy sh*t dude - WTF? You have hot links to copyrighted products and a .info name that just screams for somebody to f*ck with you. I must admit that the email is highly suspect - but you really should follow the advice of the other BHW members.

    Exactly... I've seen lots of ClickBank emails... That one is pretty damn short.

    Who signed it?

    Clickbank would never care because those arent there products nor do they own them

    That email is fake for sure.

    check email header to make sure it has come from clickbank domain name.
    or you can paste the email header here

    Don't believe everything in a mail header. If it was from clickbank they would have contacted your hosting and your host would have closed it down. don't hand anything over

    I saved HTML copies of the pages to my hard drive. All the links for the files point to sharecash files, can anyone help me download without taking a bunch of surveys? I would like to start sharing the stuff on mediafire.
