Blogger DMCA takedown notification

Blogger has been notified, according to the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), that certain content in your blog infringes upon the copyrights of others. The URL(s) of the allegedly infringing post(s) may be found at the end of this message.

The notice that we received from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) and the record companies it represents, with any personally identifying information removed, will be posted online by a service called Chilling Effects at http://www.chillingeffects.org/. We do this in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Please note that it may take Chilling Effects up to several weeks to post the notice online at the link provided.

The IFPI is a trade association that represents over 1,400 major and independent record companies in the US and internationally who create, manufacture and distribute sound recordings (the "IFPI Represented Companies").

The DMCA is a United States copyright law that provides guidelines for online service provider liability in case of copyright infringement. We are in the process of removing from our servers the links that allegedly infringe upon the copyrights of others. If we did not do so, we would be subject to a claim of copyright infringement, regardless of its merits. See http://www.educause.edu/Browse/645?PARENT_ID=254 for more information about the DMCA, and see http://www.google.com/dmca.html for the process that Blogger requires in order to make a DMCA complaint.

Blogger can reinstate these posts upon receipt of a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and 3) of the DMCA. For more information about the requirements of a counter notification and a link to a sample counter notification, see http://www.google.com/dmca.html#counter.

Please note that repeated violations to our Terms of Service may result in further remedial action taken against your Blogger account. If you have legal questions about this notification, you should retain your own legal counsel. If you have any other questions about this notification, please let us know.

The most likely source for the complaint is not a random reader, but rather the RIAA or its UK counterpart. That was what a bunch of bloggers determined when they pursued further info about these takedowns last fall.

More stupidity from the record "industry". Never saw the original posts, so I don't know what the albums were, but a search on amazon.co.uk and amazon.com reveals two results for Strawhead.

One (and the only one on Amazon.com) is for am mp3 called Strawhead by a band named Spitfire.

The other is an unavailable CD by Strawhead called Tiffin.

From the Strawhead website

"Tuesday, May 19, 2009 may be the present time .....but if you want to recreate the past in music, and want to hear our song heritage at its' finest in perfomance, then Strawhead are the band to listen to."

Uh, excuse me, how the fuck are we supposed to listen to the band if we can't buy the records through Amazon and can't get it from audioblogs? Mystically sense that "A Strawhead concert is always an event you won't forget"?

Yeah, right.

Anyway, yours is a fantastic blog that I only found today, and I hope you will keep going for a very long time. I will be a regular dropper in for a wee pint here.

The rip off merchants are on the attack. They have spent many years ripping off the public as well as the artistes and now piously claim they are protecting artists rights. I love this blog. Please do not go away.

You are still showing Ralph McTell - The Journey - for downloads despite my comment some months ago.

That one is available on Amazon. It really should be removed from your site unless you have permission from Ralph.

Like most people I don't want you to get into trouble - you do a great job with the deleted stuff
