I have no idea who GrayZone is.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 file named JD - 1980_02-08 ULU (2012 master) part 2.zip is identified by the key (8nwbdu0xrzkvyge).As a result of this notice, pursuant to Section 512(c)(1)(C) of the DMCA, we have suspended access to the file.The reason for suspension was:I have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.Information about the party that filed the report:Company Name: GrayZone, IncContact Address:Contact Name: GrayZone, Inc.Contact Phone: (718) 360-9941Contact Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgCopyright infringement violates MediaFire's Terms of Service. MediaFire accounts that experience multiple incidents of alleged copyright infringement without viable counterclaims may be terminated.If you feel this suspension was in error, please submit a counterclaim by following the process below.
This is very frustrating. This material, while released at one point, was given to the label by US. We enter the questionable area of ROIO (Recordings of Independent Origin) copyright. Is it worth it for me to file a counterclaim? Do I - as an "originator" of this work, have any grounds to do so?
I am not re-upping the files. I also am not going to post High Wycombe (Still's CD2 from the 2007 reissues), also freshly mastered by me after discarding my 2006 work as-released. That said, punters who did not download ULU yet can find it on the darker sides of the internets; I know at least one site that might be known as why.cd or some similar name has the FLACs available.
Additionally, Mediafire (the 2nd account I used) has suspended the analogloyalist account. Therefore all previous re-upped links are dead.
At this time I am not re-upping anything - if I decide to re-up anything - until I finally sort out hosting. It is expensive; with the bandwidth used the contributions from my readers doesn't really cover more than a week or so from what I've researched so far.
Due to the heavy spotlight on this blog, I question whether I can post anything not recorded/owned by me myself and I, such as my old bands. Why would I want to?
Let's see comments.
