Slashdotted... (01 May 2002 at 17:51)
I'm on slashdot (my sixth time) over this embed cease-and-desist business. Not really the best timing, but amusing nonetheless!

Are AGFA Monotype on crack?

Do not let the man get you down.

You ought to get the cease & desist letter posted on

http://www.chillingeffects.org/

From their home page:

"In addition, we want your help. We will be gathering a searchable database of Cease and Desist notices sent to Internet users like you. We invite you to input Cease and Desist letters that you've received into our database. We will respond by linking the legalese in the letters to FAQs that explain the allegations in plain English."

Please, please: Read the this comment on /. - if you end up going to court, it might make a difference - it may even help to stop the DMCA (I am not the author of the comment - I don't know who is)...

Yes, we all know this A., but Tom can't make Monotype sue him.

And Tom has posted his letters to chillingeffects.

Someone on that slashdot thread pointed out that the hypocritical idiots at the dallasnews.com have an e-mail this to a friend link at the bottom of every article page! If that's not encouraging deep linking I don't know what is... be sure to point that out to their lawyers ;)
