DMCA Complaints are the New Blackhat Technique

What happens if someone files a DCMA complaint against your domain to Yahoo?

Brian Turner from Platinax believes your domain will be removed from the Yahoo index and that Yahoo does not check the validity of DCMA complaints.

And I should know – the domain that you’re reading this on, www.platinax.co.uk – was removed from Yahoo! search in November 2004, apparently after such a complaint – a complaint that I was never even made aware of.

Interestingly enough, no DMCA complaint has apparently been filed against Platinax via any other search engine – and even after Yahoo! finally confirmed that a DMCA complaint has been made to them against this site, Yahoo! will not provide any details of the complaint.
