Vimeo takes "Furries: An Inside Look" down
Curt Pehrson notified us that his documentary, “Furries: An Inside Look” has been taken down by Vimeo.
“Sorry, “Furries – An Inside Look” was deleted at 2:58:01 Mon Mar 28, 2011. Vimeo has removed or disabled access to the following material as a result of a third-party notification by Adam W. Chapin claiming that this material is infringing: Furries – An Inside Look. We have no more information about it on our mainframe or elsewhere.”
Curt let us know by twitter:
“We will wait for the facts to come to light w/e they are.”
“Got a copy of the actual takedown notice. The claim was that he owned the entire documentary. Absolutely frivolous.”
As this develops we’ll update you with more information.
