No more Lynda.com for me · The present and future of post production business and technology
For background, a bogus DMCA takedown notice will result in a site – doing absolutely nothing wrong – is taken off the internet. I know if that happened to me, I’d be taking up my rights to sue for the bogus takedown. The copyright system will remain broken until the penalties for a bogus takedown are the same as for the piracy. They both damage businesses, but damaging unrelated and innocent businesses is shameful and I believe even worse. Particularly when Lynda.com now knows they are supporting an organization that is ruining other businesses.
Lynda is sending out bogus takedowns to get some websites off the internet. As screencaster Lynda.com is a great inspiration, and for consumers it’s a great place to get schooled, but this kind of business behavior is not acceptable.
