Beyonce Gets Bounced

Here's something interesting... got this email... blogger deleted a recent post here...

Blogger has been notified, according to the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), that certain content in your blog infringes upon the copyrights of others. The URL(s) of the allegedly infringing post(s) may be found at the end of this message.

The notice that we received from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) and the record companies it represents, (etc. etc. etc.)

Hmmmm... the entire post was LINKS to other posts, all properly credited, including LINKS to YouTube video of Beyonce. Nothing there that should get the Phonographic Industry's dander up...

??????

Anybody care to comment????

I did send a friendly email to Blogger:

Hi Blogger People!

I hope you don't mind if I post about this. As is the case with many of my posts, I merely LINKED to other websites (in this case i linked to a YouTube video of Beyonce, which was still up on the web a minute ago and appears to be Kosher...)

So should bloggers NOT link to music videos or anything of that ilk?

Thanks!
Dave Lucas

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
