Are you thinking about hiring DMCA.com or DMCADefender.com to help you remove your photographs or your complaints listed on ComplaintsBureau.com ? WARNING!
I would like to inform you that filing a false DMCA takedown request section 512(f) actually carries more criminal charges than displaying copyrighted content. A DMCA takedown request contains the line “under penalty of perjury”, by submitting a false DMCA takedown request, you are committing perjury. If you would like to show up at a jurisdiction of Federal District Court , I would be more than happy to meet you in a courtroom, just bring a toothbrush for the prison sentence. Let me explain why the posts on ComplaintsBureau.com cannot be taken down under a DMCA takedown request. Under the “Fair Use” clause 17 U.S. Code § 107 of the DMCA takedown request , Complaints Bureau has given a limited license to use items such as a logo, trademark or images text, photographs, illustrations, graphics, audio clips, video clips, and audio-video clips, from your site for the purposes of a “review” or “consumer complaints”. Complaints Bureau is a consumer advocacy and complaints website. Just because you do not like something DOES NOT mean you can demand the removal of the content. I have already gotten thousands of DMCA takedown requests and informed them that I intend to file DMCA counter-notification. I have also filed it away with the thousands I get every year. EVERY business,entity and/or private individual that is listed on Complaints Bureau, has tried this stunt.
