Perhaps your team does not understand that you are legally required to act upon the DMCA removal request upon receipt. This is a very critical issue that needs to be addressed as soon a possible.

The below quote will expain how DO handles DMCA requests.

"We received notice on behalf of a trademark holder that a customer of DigitalOcean was hosting infringing content on our network. DigitalOcean immediately notified our customer of the infringement, and the customer was given a five day period to resolve the issue. The infringing content was not removed within the specified period even though several notifications were issued. Per DigitalOcean’s terms of service, a final reminder was issued to our customer and, when no action was taken, access to the content was disabled. The infringing content was subsequently removed by the customer and all services were restored in less than two hours."

A simple google search would have saved us both some time...
