The Tumblr Police Have Lost Their Shit This Week
I got a copyright infringement notification over leaked images of the new Ninja Turtles that were all over the goddamn internet the other day. Not to mention that every-other blog was posting them as well.
What asshole is policing the internet for leaked images of the Ninja Turtles that are already everywhere from toy blogs to movie blogs. It’s good press if people are saying “hey, these new Ninja Turtle designs are really good”.
I’ve been on tumblr since 2008 and not once have I gotten a Copyright notification until this week when I signed-off on Tumblr’s new terms of service. Now I’ve already gotten two? There’s no way that’s not a coincidence.
“People are really excited about the images they got from our upcoming movie. They’re so excited, they’re sharing them with their friends, and building free publicity and buzz for our movie!”
“Well, we’d better do everything we can to stop that!”
