On Sunday I got an e-mail from tumblr informing me that they’ve
"received a notification of alleged copyright infringement on one of [my] blogs, sent to [them] by Jeremy Banks (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry)."
The link beneath to this alleged copyright infringement post was broken so I couldn’t trace back which post this concerned. (All I could tell is that it must have been a music file obviously.)
I was a bit confused by this message but also stupid enough to not care more about it because I just don’t post music I don’t own. (Oh silly.)
Anyways, today I got another e-mail – the FINAL WARNING – which reads like this:
“due to repeated uncontested notifications of copyright infringement against one or more of [my] blogs, [my] Tumblr account is one more uncontested notice away from termination.”
This one didn’t even try to make it clear which post they are actually talking about and I’m panicking a bit, because DUDES, DON’T DO THIS TO ME!
I BUY MY FUCKING MUSIC.
So now I’m trying to make clear that this shit is very much not correct. And I also am not able to find a single e-mail address that would allow me to turn towards some human tumblr-employee whose name is not “No Reply”. This is freaking me out and I don’t know if it really should. Ah!
The last thing we discover in life is our effect.
