So the copyright maximalists want sites to just take their word that stuff is infringing and take everything down with the flimsiest of DMCA notices.....DO IT! Do it for one month, take every single thing down on the slightest hint of infringement or DMCA notice! Take it down regardless of who or what is requesting it! Take it down if your dog barks at the screen for no reason!
Take it down! And it won't be long before those idiots realize that without a valid, functional, well-defined system...their "perfect world" where any DMCA takes anything down for any reason is actually a wasteland of broken links, 404 notices and lost revenue.
...we have rapists, thugs, thieves, con artists, grifters, junkies, pushers, hookers, murderers, pedophiles, and all manner of people who will seek to take advantage of your naivete and ignorance and trust....
THIS is the precise reason why I DO NOT purchase e-format books of any form. 1) the device company can just yank them off your device (Amazon) 2) if the company sinks you lose all your PURCHASED PRODUCT (that's like buying a hardback & then when the publisher goes bankrupt they come to your door & demand the book back) 3) did anyone notice the price-fixing scandal?
when the only people in the room are prostitutes and there aren't any actual "clients"? Hood prostituted himself to MPAA whom prostituted themselves to Hood and Moore while Moore was prostituting himself to MPAA and DCA was just standing waiting for it's turn in the round robin of ruination.
Re: Among usual boilerplate, Masnick's only real worry is "undermine intermediary liability".
1) if Mike were to truly censor you he'd just block your stupid ass 2) it's a good thing that YOU don't get to decide what is actual "hate speech" because you obviously have issues 3) if it bothers you so greatly then take your ball and go home....or I'll buy you a new one to go home with if you have lost yours
