WordPress Took Down Blog Under DMCA Takedown Comment

Recently, a Spanish non-commercial blog specializing in news connected with Amazon Kindle was blocked by WordPress. The reason was that the blog linked to a website that hosted illegal copy of a book. Despite the fact it’s a legal act according to the local law, WordPress still took down the blog under a complaint made by an anti-piracy outfit, arguing that the blog owner had ignored the complaint. However, if WordPress knew how they made it, they wouldn’t be surprised that he did so.

The owner of a Spanish blog specializing in Kindle and eBook news said he was disappointed with WordPress as domain hosting service, when he tried to post a new article, but got a notice that the site was blocked. After he got in touch with WordPress to figure out what was the trouble, he has got a respond saying that WordPress received a valid DMCA notice for his blog.

Indeed, in one of his blog posts, the author placed a link to a copy of the book hosted on a file-hosting service, noting that its publishers didn’t mind users converting other formats. However, his action disturbed the Spanish Reproduction Rights Center (CEDRO), which decided to issue the blog owner with a takedown request. Unfortunately, the anti-piracy group made something of a mess of it.

For some reason, CEDRO didn’t send the blog owner an email so that he could see who the source of the complaint was. Instead, it posted the notice (guess where?) in the comments section of the post. No wonder, why it was not taken seriously at once. After that, the outfit decided to go right to WordPress, although the owner’s email address is published clearly on his blog.

WordPress was told that CEDRO has already tried to contact the blogger directly, but was ignored. Based on this, CEDRO asked the service to help it take down the blog. The blog owner was surprised by the complaint, as he always expected that a takedown notice is supposed to be delivered in a proper manner. But in the first place, he didn’t even violate any law to receive one. CEDRO claimed in its complaint to WordPress that the blog was hosting illegal copyrighted content, but the site only carried a link, which under Spanish law was proved to be completely legal, if it had a non-commercial grounds. Since the blog made no money and had zero advertising, it qualified perfectly, but CEDRO seemed to prefer pursuing the non-profit blog instead of haunting the sites hosting hundreds of copyrighted works. Strange enough.
