Fancy that! Once again, it was Warners who were over-reaching their powers this morning. Just had an email from Rich Walker at 4AD:
Warners via ADA are our physical distributors in the States and inexplicably chased this track, among many others for pull downs off blogs and sites. We don't know why and weren't involved. As much as we support them with taking down full albums, remixed tracks off the artist's own sites are not on that same radar. We can only apolgise and tell you that they assure us that the artist sites are on a whitelist now. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
I'd like to thank Rich for looking into this quickly, and catching the mistake (Rykodisc, I'm still waiting to hear anything from you.)
Perhaps the time has come for someone to have a quiet word with Warners and suggests they talk to the artists before launching scurrilous and baseless attacks on people via the DCMA.
