Since my Vridar thread was unceremoniously and prematurely closed, I am reopening a new one. Please wordpress, play nice. According to the blog's (vridar.wordpress.com):
" I can assure everyone that I received absolutely no warning or take-down notice from either Joel Watts or WordPress prior to WordPress deactivating Vridar. None at all. I have asked WordPress to tell me when they sent me a warning notice and they do not reply. I have checked my spam email and there is nothing from either Joel or WordPress. Nothing.
I did ask WordPress for a copy of the take-down notice I was supposed to have received and they did send me that — and I showed that in my alerts to other sites — but there was no header to indicate when it was supposedly sent or to what email address. They have not replied to my requests to tell me when they supposedly sent me that notice.
I received no notice whatever. If Joel says he sent me email notices I ask him to show copies of the emails with send address and times.
So the responses to my original thread were not serious attempts to resolve this.
1) Who says wordpress is interpreting the copyright infringement correctly?
2) Since this is a grey area (what constitutes copyright infringement in this particular instance?), wouldn't it be more responsible to give Mr. Godfrey a means for remedying the alleged copyright infringement?
3) If wordpress did send a notice to Mr. Godfrey, why can't it produce edocumentary evidence of that to present to Mr. Godfrey?
4) Presumptiously declaring "well, if there is a copyright infringement, of course it was taken down" is a little like "well, if he wasn't guilty,the police officer wouldn't have arrested him." I think it is, frankly, un-American. ;-).
The blog I need help with is geoffbarrett15.wordpress.com.
