A little ways back an article about my music appeared on a web site. I posted about it here. Along with the entry I posted a PDF of the article, in preparation for the time when the original site goes dead. Recently I got a takedown request for my PDF, alleging infringement. The site is a content farm generating linkbait. Most likely they think I’m a spambot that mirrors original content. The takedown request itself is probably 90% bot.
So, no point arguing with lawyerbots. For the moment there is a PDF of the takedown request in place of the PDF of the article. When the original site goes down, whenever that is, it will be safe to put the original PDF back, and that’s also when the original PDF will be useful.
The URL of the article was http://guitar.lovetoknow.com/Reviving_Historical_Guitar_Music . The URL of the PDF is http://soupgreens.com/wp-content/uploads/lovetoknow-noticeofcopyrightinfringement.pdf .
