Godaddy Copyright Infringements: Godaddy Copyright Dispute for Your Dedicated Server Hosting. At last, actually my friend quotes a paragraph of an article from the web, and the web don’t want to be quoted. So the website owner or administrator notified the so-called Copyright Dispute or Copyright Infringements to Godaddy.com. At last we learn this news. Both my friend and me feel angry for this. Since the website administrator might have notified my friend directly and asked my friend to delete this quoted paragraph. But why he wrote to Godaddy Copyright Claims Department?
