I just wanted to share this notification from my Mediafire account.

________

Dear MediaFire User:

I don't see why a person would want to copyright a 40 second clip of a supposed leak of a GN'R song just for shits and giggles.

Not neccesarily actually copyrighting it but at least making it seem like you have. I mean like I said the Uzi Suicidal person is assumed to not be legit but yet he gets a lot of stuff taken down on youtube. Why they would do it is beyond me though

Being honest, I couldn't care less. I just wanted to share the message since it had some "Axl Rose" and "Guns N' Roses" words on it. I haven't even read it lol.

To those guys at copyright infringement: COME AT ME BRO.

I'm on the fence about leaks.

To me, it's interesting hearing it the other way around - hearing the finished songs, then hearing the demo of it. Then the debate comes up about whether or not a song should have been left alone.

Do you know in which state the LLC is registered? I have searched through a few states but found nothing so I have a growing suspicion Uzisuicidal is just a crazy fan who thinks he/she acts on behalf of the band and are exploiting bad complaint procedures at Youtube to do it. From Youtube's perspective it is much safer to remove a few videos extra than a few videos too few, and if their decisions are challenged then it is easy for them to retrieve the videos and make them available again.
