The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States law that, among other things, specifies how content can be removed from web sites.
Sometimes entire sites can be taken down!
This often angers Europeans, and rightly so. We’re not Americans, and we don’t want to be held hostage to their laws.
However, ask yourself this: Do you legitimately have the rights to use the content on your site?
If the answer is “no” then simply searching for an “anti-DMCA” host won’t help.
Why, you ask? Well that’s a good question.
If you don’t have the rights to use the content, you’re in breach of copyright laws.
Copyright laws are international, and every country in the European Union – and indeed every country in the world – has laws covering copyright.
It’s merely called something else, and not a DMCA takedown notice.
Whether it’s America or Amsterdam, no country in the civilised world is going to let you use something that you didn’t create.
Never mind the fact that using and distributing someone else’s content without their permission is immoral.
It’s also illegal, and copyright laws are designed to protect content creators and to help them to safeguard their content.
The moral of the story
It’s simple: create your own original content.
Search engines will love it, and so will your website’s visitors.
Meanwhile, you safeguard yourself against copyright claims by making sure that you’re only sharing content that you yourself own the rights to.
If you want an anti-DMCA host then we’re your guys.
But we don’t like DMCA because it’s an American law that tries to overreach its jurisdiction.
We still adhere to European law, and you should too. That’s what laws are there for.
