Looking to maybe self host my own instance, I’m still learning about the fediverse. If a different instance that I federate with hosts something illegal are there risks to me? Is anything from other instances hosted on my server like a copy of it? Or would I only end up hosting things my users post? I’m paranoid and sorry if this is a silly question.

    One caveat to that would be the DMCA, where liability protection as a service provider I think is contingent on there being a DMCA process available so infringing content can be removed.

    I don’t know enough about how that all works with the fediverse, however.

      The fediverse is still a relatively small thing, even with all the popularity it’s been getting.

      So dmcas are yet to happen
