: sceners. But perhaps the most important reason we need
: ICOMM is to deal with the mega-sites MP3.com and
: Tripod, both of which reacted swiftly to remove DJ
: Carbon's songs and web pages from the Internet, but who
: are now refusing to release any personal information
: about DJ Carbon, information that his victims will need
: so that they can take legal action against him.
Hey hey hey, hold on there now - these organizations are in the right by not releasing that information. They have the right to protect their personal files just as any other business does. IF there is in fact a civil lawsuit being filed, that information can be released with a court order, so there is no reason to harass them about their privacy policies.
I applaud the actions of both MP3.com and Tripod and don't feel as though harassing them will result in anything positive.
