I got the following email from Tumblr. This was the first time I’d ever heard of a copyright infringement grievance against me. The only thing I could find that Tumblr hed removed from my photostream was an apparent nude selfie that was removed because”“it violated someones privacy”. Hunh, so some people haven’t heard that if you post stuff on the internet it stays there forever?
And what is the “uncontested” crap? I have never received a notice that I could contest!
So I guess I’ll stop posting as of now
We’re writing to let you know that, due to repeated uncontested notifications of copyright infringement against one or more of your blogs, your Tumblr account is one more uncontested notice away from termination. PLEASE CONSIDER THIS A FINAL WARNING.
As a reminder, Tumblr, as required by US law, implements a strict policy of terminating the accounts of repeat copyright infringers. It’s important for all creators that our users respect copyright, and so we ask that you take greater care in what you post to your Tumblr blogs. You can review Tumblr’s Terms of Service (http://www.tumblr.com/policy/en/terms_of_service) and Community Guidelines (http://www.tumblr.com/policy/en/community) for more information on our copyright policies.
Also, if you believe that a copyright infringement notification has been incorrectly submitted against you (in other words, that you have the legal right to post the content), you can contest the notice and file a counter-notification according to the procedure found here: http://www.tumblr.com/policy/en/terms_of_service#dmca
