Obviously illegal acts where prohibition by court is not possible
We can suspend a domain name if it is used for obviously illegal acts and where, before a complaint to DK Hostmaster, an attempt has been made to obtain a legal injunction or prohibition against the infringer or other technical intermediaries who contribute to the spread of the illegal content
We can suspend a domain name if these four conditions have been met:
- The Domain Name is used in connection with manifestly illegal acts or omissions, and
- An injunction or prohibition in a specific case regarding illegal content on a website has first been sought against the infringer or other intermediaries than DK Hostmaster, who technically contribute to the spread of the illegal content, and
- Such an injunction or prohibition – in view of the purpose hereof - is not a real possibility or must be considered hopeless or has proved insufficient, and
- The circumstances call for not awaiting a decision from the Complaints Board for Domain Names or the courts.
It is important to note that all four conditions must be met for us to suspend the domain name. This means that we cannot suspend on the basis of obviously illegal acts alone.
How do you submit a complaint?
Fill out the contact form.
What do we take into account when we make our decision?
We emphasize that all condtions are met. This means that the person making the complaint must both send documentation that the domain name is used for obviously illegal actions, and that an attempt has been made to obtain a legal injunction or prohibition against one of the parties mentioned in the second condition, prior to a complaint to DK Hostmaster.
It is thus not sufficient only to submit documentation that the domain name is used in connection with obviously illegal acts.
For further information and for the exact wording of this provision, we refer to point 9.4 of DK Hostmaster's Terms and conditions.
