The DMCA Jedi, issue #01.02 - "I do not want my letter posted."

When you're communicating in the internets, there is one ground rule: DO NOT FEED THE TROLL. Too few people know about that.

Also it seems that Mrs. [private] is a proud designer of the fine book Allure of the Vampire: Our Sexual Attraction to the Undead (thanks TorrentFreak!)

Things start to get scary - seems like we've touched a nest of Goth vampire things.

Anyway, back to business:

I asked you to remove the hash info and the external results of the files. You refused. Read the DMCA. You are bound by law to remove these things as they PROMOTE the theft of our music, which is in direct violation of DMCA.

And the phone is not listed online. I do not want my letter posted.

I have contacted Google.

And the reply:

Hello, [private], glad that you're in good health!

> I asked you to remove the hash info and the external results of the files.

We kind of read DMCA all the time. What exactly section and paragraph
are you referring to?

We have a very special page for people like you:

We do not PROMOTE anything. We just index internet information.

I see you're fond of US laws. This isthat:
1) We're not under US/DMCA jurisdiction
2) Our country laws are not precedent-based

But fair is fair.

We would gladly remove this if you present us with any precedent US
court ruling on this matter - when web publisher was ordered to remove
file names (not links, we do not post links to content infringing on
your rights).

> And the phone is not listed online.

Too bad. Then you shouldn't have sent it to us with lawsuits threats.

> I have contacted Google.

I'm sure Sergey Bring himself will hurry to remove us from the internet.
