Can private repository be taken down for any reason?

Hi!

I like a repository that I think will be taken down soon by DMCA or something else. I cloned(not fork) that repository as private. Can my private repository be taken down also? And also another example. If I upload repository that was taken down(along with the forks) by DMCA a few months ago, can it be removed if it is private? Can making a private repo be taken down for any copyright or other reasons?

Thanks! Have a nice day!

Hi there! The GitHub DMCA policy applies to all repos, and you can learn more here:
