Because this situation might recur, I'll outline the specifics:

  • PRS for Music (https://www.prsformusic.com/) issued a DMCA takedown for a ReMix by @Beatdrop
  • Dreamhost removed the mix and notified us...
  • ...however, our automated process to synchronize mirrors put the mix right back where it was, and Dreamhost subsequently shut the whole mirror down
  • I am in the process of issuing a counter-claim and checking with Dain to see if there's any reason this company would have issued such a claim; even if there is, our content policy grants us license to publish/distribute and supersedes any subsequent agreements re: exclusivity.
  • In the meantime, the mirror will remain down

Good luck; they'll serve you a lawsuit just for listening to music in public.

I'm not making this up.

They tried suing someone for singing to herself because it constituted 'a live public performance'.
