Hey guys, please note that it's not Skillet that filed the copyright notice, it's the record company...
If doing this hasn't lost that band several fans, I don't know what will.
Well in my opinion there wasn't much left to burn, except their CD's. Ugh, they're running out of things to scream about. Some of it really isn't worth listening to, unless your hobby is playing with synthesizers...
I hope they have fun with that DMCA silliness, because if they call b/s on EVERY fansite they see, their fanbase will not only decline, it'll be decimated. The internet is one of the only ways to share ideas nowadays, so they're going to be in for a very rude awakening.
Idiotic and pointless. I know that there are a lot of bands out there who love such easy publicity that their fans can give them by doing things like this.
Shouldn't the band realize that when people do things like this, it is an easy way to expand their fanbase?
Of course, now that they have taken this path instead, they've cut off an easilly aquired new fanbase. It's called burning bridges.
HAH! Fuck, if someone was using pictures of my face I'd be damn FLATTERED. What a one-sided claim! Thats like funimation coming in and bashing for every Dragonball thread/discussion group on the internet; Pointless.
Well thats dumb because of a picture? Come on. They should be flattered that a character in a work of fiction or writing is in their likeness through the sense of sight, and not necessarily action. Does this band go on every website in the world to find a pix of them just to take it off? They should look at it as free advertising or something.
I would. Say more but I think this whole mess is bullshit
It is truely sad that it had to come to this...
I'm not sure I understand.
The stories are parodies. "Fanfics" there should be no harm coming to this site for using them. I have seen many role plays, with popular bands, (ex, slipknot.) Yet, have not seen any one try and take those down.
I believe you should still continue to try and run the site and fight this. I am highly irritated, that they are making you remove these.
All posts are either in parody or to be taken as literature. This is a roleplay site. Sexual content is forbidden.
