I like art, photography, groovy music, and that which is subversive.

Heads up anyone who got the tumblr DMCA notice today:

I love the part that says ALTHOUGH YOU DID NOTHING WRONG PLEASE REVIEW OUR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT GUIDELINES BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THIS WAS OUR MISTAKE WE STILL THINK YOU’RE A CRIMINAL.

Whatever, indeed.

I just posted about this. It was some mistake from their automated service, they’re claiming.

Ah!  I only just woke up.  Glad it’s an error but bloody hell, how to send the entire user base into a spin.   

Final Warning…

I just received a “FINAL WARNING” for copyright infringement.

So I could disappear at any moment.   

Does anyone know of Tumblr users who have been deleted due to repeated copyright infringements?  Is this really likely to happen?   

Guess I’ll need to go through the ENTIRE ARCHIVE of 10,000 posts and remove 5 year old music posts….  I need that time sink like a hole in the head right now…. 

Also HOW are you supposed to even contest a violation if they don’t tell you what the offending post is? No clue whatsoever.

Argh.

EDIT:  It is apparently an error on behalf of Tumblr’s automated system. Nice one, guys!

REASONS I DIDN'T REPLY TO YOU:
I was going to answer you but I got distracted by something and forgot
My inbox fucked up and ate the message
I have nothing else interesting to say
I suck at socialising and don't know how to reply
I get a lot of messages and it takes a while to get through them
NOT REASONS I DIDN'T REPLY TO YOU:
I hate you and never want to see you again
