That's like if someone would sue WordPress because of the Credit Link in
footer. +1 Otto. Owning a Domain name is something completely different.
Now, kindly respond back to DMCA stating that this was a mistake, if they
have your full information, this could lead to Google. Google works closely
with DMCA and in some cases your very own site could be on the blocked
listed due to alleged copyright infringements. One of my clients had that
happen in past.
In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium
> CopyrightAct, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page.
> If you wish, you may read the DMCAcomplaint that caused the removal(s) at
