Yeah. And *think twice* before quoting the stuff, Dave. ;-)

A friend of mine dropped me these links that might be of
interest to some folks here.

P.S. Oh, BTW, I really like this:
(DMCA Safe Harbor Provisions)

 While the safe harbor provisions provide a way for
 individuals to object to the removal of their materials
 once taken down, they do not require service providers
 to notify those individuals before their allegedly
 infringing materials are removed. If the material on
 your site does not infringe the intellectual property
 rights of a copyright owner and it has been improperly
 removed from the Web, you can file a counter-notice with
 the service provider, who must transmit it to the person
 who made the complaint. If the copyright owner does not
 notify the service provider within 14 business days that
 it has filed a claim against you in court, your materials
 can be restored to the Internet. ...."

P.P.S. Surprise surprise, the "banned" OP [in quoted form]
can still be found here:
