So some issues/questions about Cloudflare and their DMCA policy.

When I do a DNS lookup for a domain name that is using Cloudflare, the record shows Cloudflare and there is no way to find out the host of the site or otherwise trace real IP of the domain.

Cloudflare says they are not a host, yet they handle DMCA's in a similar way to a host. If they "accept" your DMCA they then provide you with the host, and then you have to file a second DMCA with the host.

Is there a legal precedent for have a pre-DMCA authority?

If they accept DMCAs, shouldn't they stop allowing the content to be served being the processor of the DMCA?

If they fail to act on a DMCA should I send a message to Cloudflare's ISP?
