Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


A couple of posts from three years ago today are at one end of an interesting thread that runs to the present. One post was titled DMCA LULZ Du Jour and the other was the TKPOTD for that date. Here’s the first post.

I received this email from WordPress yesterday afternoon—

IIRC, all of the images that the Cabin Boy™ bitches about in his DMCA notice were published on Twitter. That gives other Twitter users a royalty-free license to republish them. Now, I don’t know whether all of the commenters involved have Twitter accounts, but even use by someone who isn’t a Twitter user or use of an image not published on Twitter would probably be covered by Fair Use as noted in Twitter’s email.

BTW, it was a righteous DMCA notice concerning an image that the Cabin Boy™ foolishly used that forced Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to flee to an off-shore server.

Failing failures gotta fail.

That day’s TKPOTD was also about that off-shore server.

Here’s some fun factoids about the Interwebz—That’s the complete list of the web domains using xeonhosting dot net for a nameserver as of 21:30 UTC yesterday. I’ll leave it to the Gentle Reader to note anything else these domains might have in common.

Here are the domains hosted on that off-shore server now—

breitbartunmasked dot com
empr dot media
greencasamaryland dot org

Once again, I’ll leave it to the Gentle Reader to note anything else these domains might have in common.
