Per our Inclusion Policy, we have no interest in indexing sites whose sole purpose is to facilitate copyright infringement. We care about intellectual property, and even though copyright law in the United States is incredibly broken, we believe content creators should be able to exercise control over and profit from the works that they have created. To that end, we will comply with DMCA takedown requests in most cases.
Since our crawler is automated, sites are added to our index without being reviewed by a Human, and content that we do not approve of can and does make it into the index. We accept no responsibility for content on other websites that you may find or access when using our products or services.
It is our policy to publish a copy of every legal notice that we receive. We may also send a copy to the Chilling Effects Project (http://www.chillingeffects.org) or The Electronic Frontier Foundation (http://eff.org) for publication, if applicable. We may also send a copy of the notice to the supposed infringer or, if we question the validity of your complaint, to the rightsholder.
Notice for Claims of Intellectual Property Violations and Agent for Notice
This is for copyright and intellectual property matters only. Correspondence about other matters will be discarded.
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide the Agent for Notice with the following information in English in your notice:
Our Agent for Notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement can be reached as follows:
6114 NE Wasco St.
Portland, OR 97213

Please note that we will generally comply with reasonable requests, but at our discretion we may choose not to remove links from our index. Search engines are not liable for copyright infringement if they choose not to use the DMCA safe harbor. Computer-generated pages of links do not materially facilitate infringing activity or put their hosts on notice of copyright infringements.
We are not hosting any of the content we link to. To have any measurable effect against copyright infringers, you will need to address the issue with the offending sites.
It is also not a valid use of the DMCA to try to prevent sites from linking to your website. You cannot use it to have your site excluded from the index. If you try to do so, we will make fun of you in public.
