Any price. Looking for EU upstream server who will help with DMCA
Hello wise people of this great forum
Our legal advisor told us that:
_in the EU, the hosting provider can just check the copyright infringement notice and, if he sees that it is baseless, he can refuse to delete the content. There is no obligation to delete the content. In the US, hosting providers follow the entire DMCA process to get an immunity from liability, i.e., they first delete the content and allow the owner of the deleted content to submit a counter-notices.
A competitor is copying portion of our articles from our blog onto his blog and then filing DMCAs to get rid of competition. They removed their website from the wayback machine, but we have some other proof that the content is ours (I can tell you this via DM).
The "fake DMCA attack" is a nice loophole, even recommended in other forums:

Therefore I am looking for a hosting company who, when receiving a DMCA, will allow us to defend ourselves and prove you that it's invalid, before asking us to remove any content.
If your upstream provider is based in the EU and you are willing to help us with this please get in touch. I am looking for hosting that is fully managed and has cpanel and litespeed.
