My 100th post - A Special Post on IPFI / DMCA

Dear friends,

I'd like to share the following experience - it's my 100th post(!):

I've got the following mail by MediaFire yesterday:

The file "African 90.852 - Orchestre Conga de Bokelo.zip" has been suspended
Dear MediaFire User:
MediaFire has received notification under the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") that your usage of a file is allegedly infringing on the file creator's copyright protection.

The file named African 90.852 - Orchestre Conga de Bokelo.zip is identified by the key (6zvu8rbsci79q7a).

As a result of this notice, pursuant to Section 512(c)(1)(C) of the DMCA, we have suspended access to the file.

The reason for suspension was:

I decided to contact IPFI with the following lines:


Please inform me on the owner of the copyright for music on the above mentioned 7" single.

Thank you in advance.


Some hours later they gave me this answer:

Dear Sirs

We believe after investigation this artist belongs to Soukous African Music

Thanks
IFPI


What's Soukous African Music about? Who is this?

My next question:

Dear Sirs,

thank you for your immediate reaction. But I can't identify "Soukous African Music" as a legal entity owning copyright on Johnny Bokelo's music.

Sincerely


And their answer:

Dear Sirs

We do not cover this artist therefore we are unable to help

Apologies

Thank you
IFPI


I didn't want their help. But I didn't want that they delete my files!

I'll re-up and hope that this will be a single case!

  1. Crazy. I had to laugh when I saw the list of "artists" included in the complaint. Good luck and best wishes.

  2. They don't know what they are talking about.

  3. Maybe they, download all mediafire files and then go through this curious program that records a sample of all copyrighted songs, and then identified by comparison with the the melodies, sometimes in youtube you can see some inconsistencies, sometimes the hound get mad with a song, and the result is delirious
    Thanks for share,a nice post anyway.

  4. This is ridiculous. Hang in there. Here's to the next 100 great posts!

  5. That's a damn shame. How are they going to delete all your files based on an empty claim? Shouldn't they have to confirm that the person who requests that the files be removed ACTUALLY is the copyright owner of the file? So, then, anyone can just say that they own said copyright and they're going to destroy all your hard work? And, for all you know, it's probably just a record dealer who doesn't want his profit margins cut because the music is available on the internet. Seen it done before...

  6. I think that they deleted only that one post. It's curious.
