How to keep your company from being a victim of copyright trolling
Posted May 24, 2018 09:21:54 I remember the day my boss, who I’ll call Alex, and I were sitting around a dinner table at a local restaurant, talking about how we had to stop complaining about the DMCA.
We talked about how this was the best thing we could do for our businesses.
The conversation was about the fact that it wasn’t fair to the creators of the content, and that if we did complain about it, we would lose business.
I think that’s the reality of the copyright world, and what’s happening with our company.
The next day, I was called into Alex’s office, and he told me he had received a call from a “friend of his.”
Alex told me that someone was trying to file a DMCA takedown notice against our website.
That’s when I knew that Alex had gotten hacked.
The person who had called me had asked me to “put my money where my mouth is,” and was threatening to take down our site if we didn’t comply.
Alex was afraid that we were going to be the next target of a copyright troll.
Alex told us that he would do whatever he could to stop the takedowns, and we decided that we would take this seriously.
We contacted the appropriate law enforcement agencies, and started contacting our business partners to get them to help us stop the harassment.
It’s been two years, and Alex is still dealing with this.
I can’t speak for the company, but I know that it’s hard for some people to understand how this could happen, and to think about the implications for them.
I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to continue doing business as usual, and have not been targeted.
I have a ton of customers who are happy with my products and my service.
I’ve also been able for a long time to continue to serve our community with quality products, like the Bic Camera and the GoPro Hero4 Black.
But that’s not the only reason that Alex has stayed in business.
Since the day the DMCA came into effect, Alex has been inundated with DMCA takedowns from trolls, and has never had a single issue.
Alex is an amazing guy and a great friend.
We’ll never forget the conversation that we had about the copyright trolling.
I hope that you can get behind us and help us keep fighting for a free and fair internet.
