I will be launching a social media website very soon that will include user generated content like video, and images. It is my understanding that sites based around user generated content draw many DMCA notices(twitter, facebook, youtube)
What advice would you give to somebody looking to launch a social media website that will inevitably draw a lot of DMCA notices. I am from the US and I intend to comply with all DMCA notices sent my way. However, even if I do comply, I have heard that many US hosts will just disconnect me after a few DMCA notices anyways.
If I have registered a DMCA takedown agent, will this prevent my hosts(maybe VPS, amazon s3 ec2) from disconnecting me if people start bothering my hosts with DMCA notices(instead of the site directly).
I've been recommended to get offshore(Netherlands) hosting or speak to the US hosts directly and tell them the nature of my site beforehand. I am fairly confused on what would be the best way to handle this dilemma.
I would greatly appreciate any advice.
