ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
** Investigation in progress **
Yes, that’s right. Our team and friends are currently investigating this fake DMCA incident and analyzing all the public data we have with us. Right now we have the evidence captured and archived, we are still waiting for a response from Dr Ashwani Maichand, Google and other related parties involved in this fake DMCA. This could take up to a couple of weeks.
However, make no mistake. This is indeed a case of copyright take-down fraud purported in order to hide online content. Once we compile all the facts of this case with due diligence, the final report will be published here.
We fight for the truth. If you have anything to contribute to this report or want to provide critical information against Dr Ashwani Maichand, you can get in touch with us at [email protected] We’re open for dialogue, unless your intention is to threaten us and waste your time.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
In particular, a negative review/story against Dr Ashwani Maichand which potentially hurt business and reputation. Here is an excerpt from that report –
I would like to share & update everyone about Dr Ashwani Maichand who is working as a Sr orthopedic surgeon in Dr B L Kapur hospital , Pusa Road, Delhi .He is has been charging patients in the name of world class orthopedic care .
My dad met with an accident on 9/2/2012 and I took him to the B L Kapur hospital in emergency and to our bad luck we got Dr Maichand as our consultant doctor. After the preliminary examination and X-rays he said that a PFN (Proximal Femoral Nail) surgery would be required as the tip of the femur bone was broken and there was a proximal humerus fracture ( Shoulder fracture) . He knew that the surgery would not be easy as my dad has been a diabetic & heart patient from the last 6 yrs. , still we agreed to his thoughts of getting the surgery done . On the 3rd day of my dad in the hospital , Dr Maichand changed his mind(Greed for more money & extend stay in the hospital) & said 2 surgeries would be required and he will be performing both the surgeries on the same day . Just a day before of the scheduled surgery ,he sent his junior doctor to me asking me to sign the consent form where he mentioned that it is going to be a high risk surgery . I refused to sign that document saying if it is a high risk then I would like to consult other doctors before getting it done- which is our right as per IPC & Medical guidelines listed by IMA . He immediately came into the picture saying it is not right and we shouldn’t wait too long and started blackmailing us emotionally .Despite of being unclear in my thoughts,I got the surgery done and during the surgery my dad’s condition didn’t allow him to carry out the second surgery& they stopped it in between and said we will do it again in next 3 days . In those 3 days my dad’s condition deteriorated & he was taken to the ICCU and had to be there for 6 days post operation . In between those 6 days , I got a chance to consult other doctors about the shoulder fracture & they said there is no need to get it operated as after the certain age the surgery would not be effective . They also told me that the shoulder bone alignment is so dynamic that the functional movement will automatically come in 6 weeks time . When I told Dr Maichand that I wouldn’t like to get the second surgery done , he immediately responded saying he is not going to treat my dad as we have been interfering too much .I followed all his guidelines and spent too much money in the hospital & also hired attendants at home on his suggestion .I didn’t know earlier that he has a share in everything I buy by giving his reference . I don’t even want to talk about money as the mental trauma my family has gone through in the last 10 months has been way above spending the money .
I also met close to 20 patients who got their surgery done by this doctor & never got satisfactory recovery from their surgery .Its been 10 months now that I got the operation done and still my dad cannot walk . I am just trying to update and spread my experience of this doctor to the maximum possible crowd so that others avoding going to this surgeon. I will also be filing the court case against him to ensure that he is barred from practicing as a doctor. We’ve fallen prey to his emotional tactics.
It is my sincere suggestion/advice to everyone that please never ever consult Dr Ashwani Maichand & B L Kapur hospital. It is my request that please share/spread this message as much as possible. Please feel free to email me /call me if you have been a sufferer due to Dr Maichand .
WHAT IS A FAKE DMCA AND WHY ARE WE LISTED HERE ?
Soon after we published the first set of our investigation reports on fake DMCAs, we managed to generate interest from online media such as Techdirt, Adweek and Huffington Post. Some of the key stories included our revelations on Roosh V, Idea Buyer, Qnet , Tai Lopez ,Amira Nature Food, Grant Cardone and more. We also shared unpublished data and information with 3 different law agencies who looked into this scam.
And we got results. We dented this fake DMCA industry and made sure we act as deterrent to the rogue reputation firms indulged in these criminal practices. Here are some of the outcomes and changes we made possible with the help of several other citizen lawyers and agencies –

Fake Fraudulent DMCA might seem inconspicuous, until it’s you at the receiving end of this crime. This is not a prank. This is not an inconvenience. This is not random. These fake DMCA cases are calculated criminal schemes targeting very specific and rather important information/content. These hitjobs are usually against media, in order to help their client hide important information from public’s eye, all in the name of Reputation Management. Millions of dollars are spent doing this, and if no one wants to bring this topic to the fore, we will.
Our team will not constantly monitor and publish these reports on a DAILY basis without fail. And we do not plan to publish and forget. We will take constructive steps in order to expose the faces behind this scam, and to try and undo the damages. AND IF YOU INDEED PART OF THIS SCAM, WE WILL ENSURE THAT YOU GET WHAT’S COMING YOUR WAY.
