Is that not redundant?


#3

it’s fine to emphasise this


#4

Filed them with whom? There aren’t really copyright SWAT teams out there, you know. Did they complain to Youtube? That seems unlikely. Maybe Google?

I think it should be noted that they are abusing the DMCA rather than seeking a civil suit for defamation.

I can confirm that Sitelock are fucking awful. Their firewall is next to useless, their admin dashboard is slow and buggy, their servers regularly go down (taking your website with it) and their support is beyond appalling and only available in business hours in a specific US timezone. Avoid.
