All Links Down

Well, it seems that my MediaFire account was shut down simply because RightStuf says they own all things Gundam:

Dear MediaFire User:
MediaFire has received notification under the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) that your usage of a file is allegedly infringing on the file creator’s copyright protection.

The reason for suspension was:

I, the undersigned, CERTIFY UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY that I am an agent authorized to act on behalf of http://www.nozomientertainment.com whose exclusive copyrights are being infringed. The information in this notice is accurate.

Original Works & Copyright Holder(s):

Thunderbolt Vol 6 started it all… and now everything is gone. All that is rather amusing considering they somehow managed to link to folders that contain works that I haven’t made available to the public nor officially released under ZS. It’s only taken, oh, 12 years for this to happen on a large scale, but it does make for an interesting attempt at continuing to release things. Guess I’ll just have to move to Mega now for releases.

Then again, I did file a counterclaim asking them to prove they have a license for English release of everything they flagged on my account. Which, if true, would mean that they licensed every Gundam manga in existence and would have to prove that:

Company needs to provide proof that infringing titles are indeed a copyright violation by providing documentation they have rights for an English release. “Gundam Series” is a highly vague and ambiguous claim to copyright and extends beyond the scope of the company as they are releasing DVD and Blu-ray material and not comic books, which is what this is, a personal collection kept online.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
