    DMCA Takedown (don't freak out)

    We had a DMCA takedown filed against us with Google:
    http://www.chillingeffects.org/notice.cgi?sID=701341

    This was entirely meaningless, and if it had been legitimate, I would have countered it.

    A spammer made a group that (as far as I can tell) had links to other sites that it said had streaming content, the spam was up for around 4 days before I noticed and and killed it. The site they were linking was actually just a malware/spam website, and didn't actually stream movies.

    These DMCA takedown requests are created by programs, not by people. It's a lot of bullshit.

    It happens all the time. They are spider crawled link related take down notices. They mean nothing and almost always can be safely ignored. You can send an email requesting more specifics if the take down does not give you enough info to check too.
