I was recently informed that Xanga is now DMCA compliant, including registering with the U.S. Copyright Office (though its form is yet to appear on the site) and setting up a DMCA page on its own site.
While I am understandably skeptical of this step since the original problem wasn't in how to report abuse, but in getting an actual reply from Xanga, it is a very positive step.
Personally, I have had very little trouble with Xanga since I mailed my first DMCA notice and received a reply to it. I hope that this step means other copyright holders will receive the same treatment. Still, Xanga will have to overcome its admitted staffing issues in order to make that happen.
I will be very eager to hear what others have to say as they deal with Xanga in the coming months. Needless to say, I will be following it and reporting back.
In the meantime though, I am very grateful to hear that Xanga has taken this step and definitely look at it as a move in the right direction.
