yeah, so I guess yesterday's post has been disappeared. I appreciate blogger deleting my whole goddamn post instead of sending me a note to just unlink the song.

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.

I'll see if I can't find something less "objectionable" and get a new post up soon.

Well damn! Who knew the IFPI loved auto tune so much? I guess it has to since most the "artists" it's "protecting" use it, haha

those fucking censors really need to get a life and start making it less easy for people to download full albums instead of picking on those of us who actually promote music and encourage (successfully, every study shows) more people to purchase music legally.

yeah, sorry... preaching to the choir, I know

thanks for your support, tart! I can't even begin to count the number of times I've heard a song on a blog then went and bought the album.

Poor record industry. Wah, my heart bleeds for them.
