    If you are working in piracy niches, you might have to face DMCA. But what are the after effects of getting a DMCA?

    It entirely depends on who sends it and what the circumstances are. I've had a DMCA from large companies who could afford to follow up on it if they chose and I've had stupid ones from YouTube video owners who tried to DMCA me over their video being embedded on my site (hah).

    If you're fucking with copyright then it really depends on how you're set-up, where you are and how far they want to chase you.

    Glad you were here.

    There are a lot of variations here. If they can chase you and you're big enough to chase then it can hurt. There are people doing this stuff on scale but there are also people who go to jail for doing it. Personally not something I'd fuck with if you don't know what you're doing.

    It depends upon the notice. they will send you the links to the content which they own, you need to remove them from your website. if they send notice to your host also then you will get a email from them too to remove the content, so you should remove the infringement and update to your host that you removed the content
    once you got the dmca means they will also send that infringement content link to the google (https://www.lumendatabase.org/). your that particulor link will be removed from google search

    if they are sending the notices to your host also, if you get too many notices in short period they will suspend server

    Yep. If you dont remove they will.
    Every country has their own law suits. For example If you host at Netherlands server. Then DMCA laws didnt apply but you will get notice as per Netherlands dutch law suits.

    Depends, but mostly it doesn't matter. You just take down the copyright content and they're fine with it, but you should be using it for educational purposes only to avoid DMCA complaints in the first place.

    Yep Google will remove the particular link from search engine. Some times copyright holder mention whole domain other than the particular content link. If they give proper ownership details and proofs to google then whole url/domain also will be blocked from search

    you can get dmca for that. you are using copyrighted materials of the game.

    you summed it up well.

    your webhost will tell you to take the page offline/host will do it themselves. maybe hosting terminate your account. maybe just a warning first time.
    the legal side of things depends entirely on who is pursuing as quoted above. generally nothing scary happens. just an email saying you received one and the content must be removed.

    I think the argument for streamers is that it's fair use but some companies (I want to say Nintendo had a history of this) will DMCA YouTubers who stream their games.
