Well i guess it had to happen. I've had my first DMCA notice. It was for a post i did on Bonny by Prefab Sprout. Still at least blogger just moved the post to draft and ask that I delete the offending link (which I have done) rather than simply deleting the whole post complete with comments which i know has happened to others in the past.
I guess as the blog has got more hits it is more likely to be noticed now.
What is odd is that i have also been asked to remove a post that featured King of Rock and Roll by Prefab Sprout. Fair enough if kitchenware or whoever have an issue with posting mp3s of the sprouts. The odd thing is that this post was in early oct and in November i had already removed the link to the mp3 (I was better at housekeeping then) but still got a DMCA notice yesterday. Therefore it seems that just mentioning Prefab Sprout is infringing copyright... oops there I go again
It's a bit ironic that it came through on Paul Haig day - an artist who has given his support to bloggers in an effort to get his great stuff more widely known.
the other confusing thing is although I assume it is for the mp3 link, it might just as easily be for the cover art, you don't get much detail in the notice. anyway better safe than sorry and I've taken down both
