Websites hosted on IllyHosting's servers in the Kosovo are regulated by Kosovo law. As a webhost, IllyHosting is not a publisher of User content and we are not in a position to investigate the veracity of individual defamation claims. We rely on the legal system and the courts to determine whether or not material is indeed defamatory. In any case in which a court order indicates that material is defamatory, libelous, or slanderous in nature, we will disable access to the material. Similarly, in any case in which a Kosovo court has placed an injunction against specified content or material being made available, we will comply and remove or disable access to the material in question.
