Wait a mo ... my blog is still up there. Perhaps this was a selective shut down of blogs violating the ToS? That’s a horse of a different color.
Mine’s still up too. But this sounds like EVERYBODY on one server was taken down. You can’t tell me they were ALL doing illegal stuff.
I wonder if those blogs can all be reinstated with everything intact.
Supposedly it's a crackdown on copyright infringement, but come on. I can't believe that every one of those 73,000 blogs had material posted on them that infringes on someone's copyright.
And, as I said upthread, what on earth does Joe F'n Biden care about copyright infringement activity? Why is the Vice President of the United States all of a sudden so damned interested in cracking down on abuse of intellectual property on the internet?
Let that thought sink in for a moment.
It’s blogs clearly violating copyright laws.
Thing is, that should take a warrant to suspend them and a court verdict to shut them down.
The veneer looks good, but it’s fast moving dry rot underneath.
