Fake DMCA [CloudFlare]

Question

So recently, I received a fake DMCA from someone on my website that's hosted with CloudFlare.

Here's the full letter: https://pastebin.com/d3nXpMvX

Is there anything I can do to get around this, or are there any other free host providers you guys would maybe recommend?

Same happened to Club Penguin Rewritten, move to a different hosting provider and stop using a service with an incompetent abuse team.

Do you have any hosting providers to recommend?

Which one are you currently using? OVH without Cloudflare should be fairly sufficient. Otherwise I'd go for Blazingfast if you have any extra cash.

We are using OVH, so I guess we'll switch off of CloudFlare. But I just recently received an Abuse Report from OVH Services just recently https://pastebin.com/CKES1G5s .

You can delete the old server, as there's no point in trying to argue with OVH abuse team, and create a new one.

In all seriousness though, just ignore the DMCA complaint if able - contact your host in advance to state that CloudFlare is about to forward their legal department a fake DMCA complaint from people attempting to impersonate Disney employees, your work falls under fair-use etc..

If your host doesn't give a shit and starts bitching, just use another or use a reverse proxy for your shit ( can get some rlly gd ones for like a few dollars a month).

It's mainly to do with whether your host gives a fuck or not, CloudFlare just forward to your host no matter if a DMCA is fake or not, and it's up to your host to act on it or not.
