WHAT HAPPENS FROM HERE ON?
- We have constituted a DMCA Watchdog Team that will review every suspicious DMCA notice on ChillingEffects and LumenDatabase. Anyone who tries to outsmart and abuse the DMCA system will be investigated pro-bono by us.
- We will publish investigation reports on fake DMCAs every month from August onwards, which will cover at least 30 separate cases.
- Every month, we will name and shame all the perpetrators and notify the relevant parties and agencies for appropriate action.
- By co-coordinating with agencies, organisations and usual targets of fake DMCAs and publicly shaming the perpetrators, we act as deterrent for such cases in the future.
