Fucking Bawbags!

Apparently you aren't allowed to mention D A's name in full, he must not need the publicity. Those complete tossers at the DMCA have taken down the Tracks Of My Year post due to a complaint for the track that I had at number 4 in my chart. I will re-up the post with the offended artist removed from the list. Such a pity as his album was going to be number two in my albums of the year post but now it to will not appear.

. . . and it continues just had a copyright infringement email from Box.net for the Fall tune. It never rains but it pours!

Ah Dickie you will now never know but none of them above.
Clever fucking marketing ploy if you ask me not wanting people to mention you at all.

I despair, I really do.

The good thing (so far) with wordpress is that I haven't had any notices to take down pieces, albeit the target nowadays is Box.Net who just remove the links and send me a wee word of warning...but as I pay a small monthly subscription to them for hosting the files they ain't all that keen to suddenly withdraw the entire account.

Might be worth shifting over amigo...

That's a bit rich Drew getting pulled for merely giving an artist a mention in a postive way

Dozy A*seholes. The DMCA take downs rarely make much sense.

I suggest you are likely to attract their attentions more when you feature/refer to current artists and material.

Stay old and obscure! Having said that I got a take down for The Five Stairsteps last year.

Bit of a strange one- given his target audience and music you'd think most interested parties would have bought his album by now and that the casual consumer might buy it (after dling a track and liking it).

"Stay old and obscure!"

with all the old and obscure shit that I featured on Sexyloser over the years, two weeks ago I received a takedown notice from BoxNet for McLusky's 'Alan Is A Cowboy Killer' .... very strange indeed ...
