Dear MediaFire User:
MediaFire has received notification under the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") that your usage of a file is allegedly infringing on the file creator's copyright protection.

The file named BTTR + SE + Patch -2.2 + Mod-Pack French Installer.exe is identified by the key (y2zozh2m1ct).

As a result of this notice, pursuant to Section 512(c)(1)(C) of the DMCA, we have suspended access to the file.

The reason for suspension was:

I drew it out for them pretty plain...BTTR is...linked them to site, SE is....linked them to site...ect. And then asked them how any of the names belong to fox
After that I asked them to open the files and get fox to open the files and tell me exactly how they figure any of the contents belong to fox.

I also mentioned something about hoping they had a decent reason for filing this to begin with because I have half a mind to sue fox for wasting my time..lol

I hate to defend Fox, but this seems to be the work of the DtecNet Anti-Piracy Teams tracking software. Searching DtecNet reveals some fairly interesting articles. It seems to be the official RIAA copyright infringement detector company.

Actually there's a couple of things you can do with this. First off, legally speaking, it constitutes harassment by way of: "...humiliating, intimidating or abusive [behavior] which is often difficult to detect leaving no evidence other than victim reports or complaints...This can take the form of verbal comments, engineered episodes of intimidation, aggressive actions or repeated gestures."

Which is on its own illegal. And by manufacturing a situation that places mental unrest upon your person, they are actively creating a situation known as harassment.

But suing a company for harassment isn't really that satisfying, so you could also use a 2006 communications law signed by George W. Bush to obtain the identities of the individuals undertaking this action by way of labeling the communications from them as spamming. In order for them to continue communicating with you in a legal manner after notification of their actions constituting spam, they would need to identify themselves by name.

Take into a account that I'm not a lawyer, but I am a college student studying law. So I would take any of that with a grain of salt. Not to mention that while the letter of the law is one thing, the practical application can be a bit more...diverse. But its food for thought.
