Again, nothing personal, but it is interesting how people come up with all these ideas AFTER the submissions were closed. A lot of people have been hammering this point for months but people did not mobilise at all. Now that this is passed...

One day Mauricio, you will be minding your own business - or website! - and BAM, it'll be gone. Because some MPAA type fired off 10,000 takedown emails using an automated software that GOT IT WRONG. They didn't check by hand.
Or maybe you said something they didn't like and decided that info was 'copyright' (like the "church of scientology" does all the time).

We've been sold down the river.
