This Post Has No Glasvegas Links. None, Zero, Nada.

As I predicted, I received a bu11sh*t "DMCA Takedown Notice" for posting a video of Glasvegas. I guarantee you, the record label requests the takedown without reading or examining the content. I read about this happening with any blog that mentioned the band when their first album came out.
So, sorry Glasvegas, you get no exposure to new listeners from me. I can't see how posting a video that your record company posted legally under the username "glasvegasVEVO's Channel" is a bad thing for you in any way. The embedding option was not disabled at the time I reposted the video. As I type this, the share option is still providing code for Blogger.
In the end, I understand that Blogger is a free service and I make the choice to use it. Sony needs to look at the intent and the content!

All the more reason to just stick with bands on independent labels. The major labels are lawsuit happy
