. . .the dipshit that filed the DMCA takedown notice today on dpwolf's Jaap Edenhall SBD remaster. I'm sure it's worth one beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelion dollars to your CD-R drive and inkjet printer, since it's only like one of the Top 3 most oft-circulating Clash boots on the interwebs and you're surely the first person on Planet Earth who in the last decade has ever thought they had a foolproof scheme to monetize this source. And best of luck getting it scrubbed off YouTube so you have the market cornered. :rolleyes:

Counter-notice has been duly filed to MEGA. Believe it or not, that's the first one since the revamped Mlist was launched 22 months ago...so, yes, we do squeak when we walk.

The counter-claim is still pending, though MEGA's taking its sweet time getting back to me. This is the only d/l link affected. You can still get the full audience recording from that show.

So is this something that will affect SonnyB's and my mix...and my most recent upgrade? Or is it just that Dpwolf version? I really don't get why an asshole would do this when as you previously said RP that it's been out there in various guises for so long.

The only legitimate copyright claim would be from the original Dutch radio station holding the broadcast rights...because the claimant is someone other than Sony. But that station has never been definitively ID'd in the 20 years the various FM sources have been circulating (likely because it may not exist anymore in the same incarnation)...so it's a tall order to prove. I documented that burden-of-proof in the counter-claim and supplied MEGA with the BMC write-up detailing the lineage of that source. Either that's enough to nullify the claim, we actually do learn the identity of the rights-holding broadcaster, or MEGA is just lazy and takes the bullshit claim at face-value: one of those three outcomes.


There's no coattails to other boots. As I said, this is the only takedown request filed on the Mlist in 2 years because all the links are scrubbed with fine-tooth comb for anything officially-released in any form. And that's pretty good for such a fat target. This is most likely just some jerkoff for-profit bootlegger too cowardly to wrestle with YouTube TOS to get all those Jaap links direct from dpwolf's remaster taken down.

If this starts to spread to other FM boots, then I'd suspect IMCT is being targeted and you and sonny might want to take notice. But there's nada evidence of that, because then I'd be seeing many takedown requests all at once pretty much in order of most-downloaded links. That's how the original IMCT d/l site got targeted. This is too one-off...and there's been zero action on YouTube where this source is way more widely circulated.

Cheers for that info Ratty appreciated. It seems like this moron is out for greed and trying it on. I wonder what other non Clash titles may have also been targeted.
