DMCA email with 300 USD bill?

My friend is hosting his rtorrent/plex dedi on a certain provider and he got a DMCA yesterday.

The host is saying that they will suspend him if the DMCA is not dealt with in 48 hours.

Is the deletion of the content enough or do they expect him to pay that 300 USD bill too? Since theres tons of hosts here I figured someone could shed some light. The mail was from https://rightsenforcement.com

  • I'm not 100% convinced a DMCA can enforce 'a bill' and that if it does have some sort of payment request that would surely have to go through a court to be paid.

  • I doubt he intends to pay that.. in such case will the host view the situation "unresolved" rather than look whetever or not the file in question has been removed.

  • First - is the host or the friend in the US? If not, the DMCA is rubbish.

    Second - it'll be a invoice designed to look big and scary. Remove the files and reject the invoice saying they didn't do anything and believe it is in error.

    Third - don't do illegal things, and this won't happen again :)

    Both of them are in US.

    Edit: case closed. Oneprovider marked it as resolved

    Looks like scam to me tbh. When you receive emails asking for money in 99% of the cases it's scam, regardless if it's a complaint or a "search engine pack renewal".

  • These are more or less scams

    Stop sharing the infringing file, do not respond to the email (only communicate directly with your provider, if you must make contact with someone), and definitely do not pay

  • These people are authorized by content creators to enforce copyright/trademark. Those emails will get somebody's parents or grandparents to pay the fine because the email looks scary.

    With all the tax breaks given to the film industry I feel I've already paid for a sizeable proportion of it...

    I'll have to admit to sending admin invoices to some of the more trolling automated DMCA thugs.

    Have I mentioned how much I hate auto correct recently?

    You should send an invoice back for $400 ;)

    Also, if all the tax avoiding corporations paid their dues we'd all be better off and might feel less inclined to stream/download/etc

    Disney, Sony, BT, EA, Netflix, Rovy, Spotify...fucking hypocrites.

  • $300 if labelled as a hosting fine is reasonable. DCMA fines are served by government and require you to work with a lawyer. Many people pretend or extort funds from people with fake fees and fines.

  • Also $300 is a bit short of the fine expected... like 3 zeros short.

    Causing drama isn't really seeking it though? Not in the way you said it anyway.

    Edit: I decided not to say anything back originally since I didn't really want humour you, but since I'm here I guess you won after all.

    I really dislike to explain jokes, but making an exception now: this was a movie joke addressed specifically to @WSS and other fans of the show.

    I don't really do humour.

    @Yura said:
    Yes.

    Since that is the case, I'll go back to what I said to WSS, it was mostly an asinine remark to another. Unless he actually believes what he said, in which case I don't even know.

    Edit: Also if you want to pick at what I said more beyond the scope of the value of digital media, tag me into the cest pit or something, we derailed this thread enough.
