A brief update to the LendInk story, where the mob took down an innocent party. The website is back up and functioning again, so it looks like a good news story.
It seems though, that in the world of copyright, the news is never all good. After it got back online, LendInk was immediately served a DMCA-style takedown notice by someone claiming to be a lawyer representing a long list of the books featured on the site. The news might not be all bad, either. The “lawyer” might not be a lawyer and his claims are probably false. Still makes you shake your head, though.
Here’s LendInk’s Facebook entry about it.
