Re: doesn't take long for the dmca's notices to start rolling in..

Bad News..
The hosting provider is still getting take down notices etc and sent me an email wanting to know what other preemptive actions I have taken or can take to prevent anymore notices from coming in.
Supposedly the DC is threatening to pull the plug on their server if they don't do something about my tor node...
So it's looking like a relay or bridge but exit node isn't looking like a happy future right now..

If I limit my exit ports to http(s) and ssh; would that pretty much stop the torrenting?
Or does anyone know a good vps hosting company they can point me too?
One that isn't racked in the FDC DC?

Thank you for the links.
My provider replied back and they are happy with the response and have no issues
with Tor continuing to run.
They have forwarded the response to the DC and told me it will be their call though
if they should decide to null route my ip or not..
One notice wouldn't be too bad but I was nailed with what looks like 11 of them..

I've been running an exit node for years, and until last month I hadn't
ever received a DMCA notice.  Lots of abuse notices, but never DMCA.

However, I got hit by one last month, and one a couple of days ago (from
different companies).  I used the form letter from the Tor site, and my
hosting provider seemed happy enough with the results.

It waxes and wanes :)
