    Either get some hosting that doesn't care about DMCAs, or just simply reword the post/posts in question.

    If your hosting/domain is outside the US you can laugh at their faces, since DMCA is an US law that does not apply outside their borders :D

    If your really paranoid and want some sort of legal advice I would check out justanswers. Just google them I can't post links yet. I have used them in the past for many things. you only pay if you are satisfied and your dealing with real lawyers, price is usually under $30 USD.

    I use Netelligent, I've received heaps of DMCA and they disregard all of them with some lulz.

    Nothing wrong about it I just found out a long time ago to find other ways because its not worth the grief when somebody barks about your posting their stuff. My 2 cents
