    If you were to load a client jar onto the player's computer through an applet loader which retrieves the jar with a P2P protocol from other players or in the worst case from a tiny webspace somewhere idk where, in order for the player to run the jar directly or let the applet run the (newly) downloaded jar in the browser, would you be safe from any DMCA enforcement?

    I've been thinking of ways to work around the DMCA and from what I can read there are no real 'safe' countries that guarantee they don't enforce the DMCA or similar laws.

    Do you have any other good ways to work around the DMCA? And yes I know the DMCA is strictly a U.S. enforced law, but most other countries have similar laws for copyright protection.

    Depends, most countries have similar laws to the DMCA. I'd need to find a country which will not enforce similar laws as the DMCA.

    Some countries would not enforce copyright enforcement laws by law as they don't have any - but the company could still decide to take down your host. But what about the P2P idea?

    what we did was buy a small host, separate from the host with site/server.
    then we hosted the jar and webclient html on that host.
    then iframe the webclient html page to ur site/server.
    then if jagex DMCA's the small host, we just buy another.

    I've thought about that as well, might consider that. Does anyone have experience with hosting in The Netherlands?

    Dementhium used to be hosted from the Netherlands and I encountered no problems but I can't assure anything

    I have hosted some C# server - client communication programs that didn't agree with the US DMCA but they did follow the Netherlands DMCA and had no issues. I would offer that you purchase hosting in the Netherlands or Sweden since both are pretty easy with their DMCA.
