How does DO handle DMCA complaints?

September 20, 2014 3.4k views

I'm working on a niche image sharing site. No porn, nothing illegal. More than likely a few images will probably get DMCAed. I have every intention of following the law. If the DMCA is passed on to me the image will be removed ASAP.

I'm just worried that DO will kill my account.

That should be fine as long as you respond promptly to DMCA complaints :)

I were responding for all DMCA request, but once I missed such e-mail, I just didn't see them. DO disabled network to my account. I removed all abusing content but still they did'nt restored connection, it's more then week now. Also they didn't answer to emails and initial ticket. When I created new ticket they said 'Ok I will resend this to safety team' and thats all. When your site is down for a week it's a disaster but it seems DO support just don't care.
So, if you use gmail, you have to mark emails from DO like 'important' and check your email everyday or you will be destroyed.
