TorrentFunk.com is an index of files available to download via the BitTorrent Filesharing Network.
Seeing that it is an index it does NOT host, link to, provide or engage in the uploading of any of the files listed.TorrentFunk is an automated website that uses Google to find Bittorrent websites on the internet. These websites are then crawled by bots and information about their files saved are to the database. Again, this is information ABOUT the files, also known as the .torrent files. The actual file itself is not stored on our servers.
We have little control over our automated indexing process.We do however fully comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Infringement notices are treated with our highest priority and we take appropriate actions to protect copyright holders' rights.

Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights.
Indeed, in a recent case (please see http://www.onlinepolicy.org/action/legpolicy/opg_v_diebold/ for more information), a company that sent an infringement notification seeking removal of online materials that were protected by the fair use doctrine was ordered to pay such costs and attorneys fees. The company agreed to pay $125,000. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
To accelerate the process, please do not intimidate us with legal waffle nor approach our ISP.
Notifications that are not sent to the correct email address will be ignored by us.
