Blogger had to remove our mixtape post for the On the run -mixtape from a complaint by Traci Crippen from RIAA. The complaint states that "certain content in your blog is alleged to infringe upon the copyrights of others". And the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) complaint is based on "unauthorized reproductions of sound recordings by artist including CHINO"
What puzzles me is that on this blog we have not published nor uploaded any unauthorized material by Chino. What we published was a link to a mixtape on another service. So if linking is illegal by some US DMCA bia**es then we're quilty.
Well, I removed the name of Chino and reposted the daymn thing. The bad thing is that the original file that was on Mediafire is also deleted by DMCA complaints.
So let's see it this post gets moderated.
p.s. we're not blaming Blogger in the first place, but DMCA. Although Blogger could have bigger balls as well in cases like this. Or Google, or who ever pulls the strings here. Oops, now Google guys will delete this post.. Maybe we should insult Apple as well and get the Apple fanboys against us?
