    Go talk to the guys at www.nukepirates.com - they know what they're talking about and they bring very good results! They have shut down several thousand sites for us, people without licenses and people distributing pirated software.

            Nope, no innocent sites have been shut down, just those without licenses or those distributing pirated software.

                  DMCA... ugh... dont even get me started. I work for a webhost and we get more emails from Universal Studios than their new director.

                  They want us to shut down sites with links to sites that might have links to sites that are linked to sites that might, just might, have illegal content on them. They have been after us not only on our end, but on the end of AboveNet that provides our upstream and downstream bandwidth. Normally I wouldn't mind so much, and we comply fully and immediately, but there is no need for the action that they take most of the time. Using DMCA against anybody is just a low blow.

                    We only use it when the infringing material is actually on the host's servers. We don't use it on links to links to links, otherwise google would have been done a long time ago

                      One example lately was an email we got from Universal (don't want to post it for fear) saying that we had a FTP site going that had illegal material... this was impossible because 1. we don't give out anon FTP 2. we'd catch the bandwidth and 3. well, we'd have noticed since we're a small company.. turned out they had called us on a site that was spoofing gigantic text files instead of the actual illegal programs. Didn't even take the time to verify it either... of course though, I know Jelsoft would never do such a thing..

                        Yeah, I don't agree with the way some people have used the DMCA, but for us 'small' software developers, it is an absolute God-send.
