It is clear that “Papa Networks,” the company that sent these DMCA notices, has no rights to the material. Google’s records show that Papa Networks is a Reputation Firm that seems to be based in Pakistan or India.
What are they trying to hide?
We found this fake DMCA and checked to make sure it was fake. So, I wrote this piece. Among the next steps will be –
Google, Olymp Projects Ltd aka MOHAMED TAOUFIK TAHAR, the beneficiary, and Lumen Database will be notified by hand. The negative content that they tried to get rid of will be published on multiple free-speech platforms like ripoffreport.com, nameandshame.com, etc. so that copies of the content will be available forever. This is the goal of this fake complaint.
What’s a fake DMCA?
If you are one of the “beneficiaries” named in this report and want to know what really happened, we suggest you read the report itself. If it wasn’t you or your coworkers, it must have been the “Reputation” or “SEO” company you hired in the past. It could have been your law firm.
So, instead of blaming us for this piece, you should ask your Reputation/SEO firm a lot of questions to find out what happened. We are just sharing information that is in a public database. We have nothing personal against you. There’s a good chance that the service you hired used illegal means to get results for you.
Fake Fraudulent DMCA might seem inconspicuous until it’s you at the receiving end of this crime. This is not a prank. This is not an inconvenience. This is not random. These fake DMCA cases are calculated criminal schemes targeting very specific and rather important information/content.
These hitjobs are usually against the media, in order to help their client hide important information from the public’s eye, all in the name of Reputation Management. Millions of dollars are spent doing this, and if no one wants to bring this topic to the fore, we will.
Assuming someone else’s identity is a major crime that can lead to criminal charges and civil penalties. Impersonation is the act of pretending to be someone else or something else for false reasons. In the case of Olymp Projects Ltd, the company has been accused of pretending to be website owners, administrators, and moderators to ask that negative material be taken down from search results and social media platforms.
It is against the law and bad manners to pretend to be someone else. Using someone else’s name or identity can hurt the person or group whose name or identity is being used, as well as the people or companies who depend on them. Impersonation can also hurt the name of the person or group being impersonated, as well as the reputation of the company that does it.
Perjury is when someone lies under oath or gives fake information in a court case. In the case of Olymp Projects Ltd, the company has been accused of making false claims in copyright takedown notices, which is a type of legal proceeding.
Copyright takedown notices tell online platforms to get rid of material that violates someone’s copyright. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) sets the rules for copyright takedown notices. The person or organization making the request must swear under penalty of perjury that they have a good faith opinion that the content is infringing.
But Olymp Projects Ltd has been accused of lying in copyright takedown letters. In particular, the company has been accused of claiming to be the approved representative of website owners and copyright holders, even though they have no legal right to do so. People have also said that the company gave false information and made up proof to back up their copyright claims.
Copyright Takedown Scam
A fake copyright takedown is a type of fraud in which online sites are given false or misleading information to ask them to remove content that does not violate anyone’s copyright. Fake copyright takedowns are becoming more and more of a problem on the internet because they can be used to shut down free speech and limit the content that is legal.
In the case of Olymp Projects Ltd, the company has been accused of using fake copyright takedowns to get rid of negative content and push positive content. The company is said to have given online platforms false or misleading information to ask them to take down negative content, even though the content did not violate anyone’s rights.
Legal and Moral Consequences
The accusations against Olymp Projects Ltd have important law and moral consequences. If the claims are true, Olymp Projects Ltd could be sued for fraud, impersonation, lying, and stealing someone else’s ideas.
