ONLY THE YOUNG DIE YOUNG

noisebaptism said: i don't get it. what are they saying you infringe on? or rather who is ratting you out thinking you are ripping them off? you're totally right being on the internet is copyright infringement by default.

sometimes it’s record companies that want an mp3 i have posted removed but it’s usually photographers who file a DMCA complaint with tumblr and then tumblr deletes the post and sends me a message detailing what i have done wrong. I get it, if i was a photographer I would probably get mad too. i just wish they would contact me 1st, so i could just remove the image or give them credit. whatever it is the artist would like me to do. 

FYI: Tumblr Is Probably About To Delete My Blog

blah blah blah fair use vs. an artist’s right to protect their intellectual property from copyright infringement, I honestly don’t have a compelling argument for or against either of those things, all i know is tumblr just sent me a final warning message telling me my blog is as good as toast. These are the perils of having a lot of followers, i guess. 99% of everything on tumblr violates copyright infringement…but whatchu gonna do. once Yahoo bought this little corner of the internet it was only a matter of time before the hammer was gonna drop.

I have been running Suicidewatch since June of 2009. I’ve always considered it a scrap book of my favorite shit that I just wanted to expose to other people. I’ve never made money off this blog, which I would like to think would protect bloggers from such retribution but I guess that’s a naive way of thinking. Have I always been pretty lazy about properly crediting photographers? yeah. guilty. but anytime someone has ever contacted me I have been more than happy to remove and post or give that credit. anyways, this isn’t a post championing my right to be a lazy blogger who just posts whatever he wants without retribution, it’s just a heads up to all you followers I have had over these many years to let you know that if you don’t notice me on your dashboards anymore or check my site and see it’s gone, or my url has been snatched up by some kid that posts nothing but pictures of weed smoking ninja cats, that you know why.

thanks to all the people who have followed me over the years, who enjoyed my mixes and had interesting and funny chats with me back and forth. you guys are rad. i still post randomly on my old blogspot Ghettoblastersandswitchblades from time to time, so if you are looking for my old mixes, that would be the place to go get them. you can also follow my boring ass twitter or my new instagram if you like nonsense about TV shows I watch and pics of my dogs. I also have a flickr with my 6 years of magazine and book scans. 

the proper thing to do would probably be to follow up on my blog name and kill this thing myself, but that would just make me too sad. no I am just gonna hang around until that one sad day when I go to log on and find out tumblr gave me the axe.

update: according to a lot of you, apparently TONS of people were getting these FINAL NOTICE emails today and are assuming this is some kind of glitch. hopefully that is the case and i just posted this for nothing, or perhaps tumblr has decided to clean house.
