    Got a DMCA takedown notice because of pirated version of forum software.
    Had to buy it... hope they won't cause us any more problems.

    ello,
    
    We have received a formal DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) notice
    regarding allegedly infringing content hosted on your site. The specific
    content in question is as follows:
    
    http://encode.dreamhosters.com/  (v Bulletin software)
    
    The party making the complaint (Gheorghe Pantea,
    GheorgheP@piratereports.com), claims under penalty of perjury to be or
    represent the copyright owner of this content. Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. ?
    512(c), we have removed access to the content in question.
    
         http://www.loc.gov/copyright/title17/92chap5.html#512
    
    If you believe that these works belong to you and that the copyright
    ownership claims of this party are false, you may file a DMCA
    counter-notification in the form described by the DMCA, asking that the
    content in question be reinstated. Unless we receive notice from the
    complaining party that a lawsuit has been filed to restrain you from
    posting the content, we will reinstate the content in question within
    10-14 days after receiving your counter-notification (which will also be
    forwarded on to the party making the complaint).
    
    In the meantime, we ask that you do not replace the content in question,
    or in any other way distribute it in conjunction with our services.
    Please also be advised that copyright violation is strictly against our
    Terms and Conditions, and such offenses risk resulting in immediate
    disablement of your account should you not cooperate (not to mention the
    legal risk to you if they are true).

    We also ask that if you are indeed infringing upon the copyright
    associated with these works that you delete them from your account
    immediately, and let us know once this has been done. We also ask that
    you delete any other infringing works not listed in this takedown
    notification, if they exist.
    
    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let us know.
