Just received a mail by Godaddy that a complain has been send to the proxy: domainsbyproxy.com
It is about a domain that I registered for my client.
The website has no files, unauthorized copyright material, spam, x-rated, provocation and so on.
In fact the website is a gateway for a group of journalist.
Now some party is very angry as they don’t seem to like the facts and they protested and made very angry phone calls to me personal.
I have replied many times in a kind way that I am only the register of this domain and that I have nothing to do with the domain contents.
They demanded to reveal the personal data to my clients to them, which according the agreement I am not allowed to handle over.
Since a year they have published my private data such as my private phone numbers on several web-logs.
You can all just imagine how many treads I received!
After that I decided to use domainsbyproxy.com to not only protect me and my family but also those journalist which are my clients.
Yesterday I received a notice from both: domainsbyproxy.com and Godaddy.
Now, as it’s the first time as a domain reseller that this is happening to me I would like to ask you what this all means.
First of all Godaddy charged me $20.00 I have absolute no idea why this is?
And I received the following mail from domainsbyproxy.com
We are contacting you regarding a trademark complaint for the domain, **********.COM.
We ask that you take steps to resolve the issue by doing one of the following within the next 3 business days:
1. Provide proof you have attempted to contact the complainant (i.e. copy or blind copy firstname.lastname@example.org
on an email to the complainant).
2. Remove the offending content and notify email@example.com
3. Notify and authorize DBP to disclose your identity for the limited purpose of this complaint by replying to this email stating “I authorize Domains By Proxy to disclose my identity to the complainant for the limited purpose of this complaint”.
Should none of the above occur, DBP will have no choice but to notify the complainant to continue their pursuit of a resolution through legal means.
Now I replied to them right away with the email send to the complainers and that they received that.
That no illegal trademarks are present on this website and that in fact I asked them last year to send a abuse mail to my company in order to do a inside inquiry.
They did not reply but taking their complaint seriously I did a inquiry myself and found that the website is not in violation and contains 2,4 Mb in whole.
Btw my good friend and high ranking lawyer from the Big Apple helped me last night in perfect English.
So are domainsbyproxy.com revealing my name to those nutcrackers which means the nasty phone calls will start again?
In advance thank you all for your suggestions!
