I know that Dramafever issued an apology and rescinded the DMCA notice to Dramabeans, but this issue isn’t just about DB. DF’s heavy-handed tactics took down blogs with soft subs and recaps of Answer Me 1997 last year…and if I understand correctly, both are covered under fair use. There was no apology issued to Mister X, nor was the DMCA rescinded for his blog.
I did my part by emailing DF and posting a comment to their apology, which to be honest I found a bit lacking. I’ve un-liked DF on facebook and un-followed them on twitter. I only hope the Kdrama community doesn’t forget about this for a long, long time, and that when DF pulls another stunt like this (and they will, you can bet on it) the community with be just as vocal and won’t stand for DF’s behavior.
