Barbados Free Press receives DMCA Takedown notice for ALL FIFA Jack Warner bribery articles!

‘Somebody’ doesn’t like BFP’s Jack Warner bribery articles. Who could that be?

Okay folks, it looks like someone is concerned about our articles about Jack Warner’s FIFA bribery allegations.

I wonder who could have lodged a complaint with WordPress?

Hmmmmmmm….. I don’t think it was Matt – but hey, if anything goes wrong at WordPress… remember: it’s always Matt’s fault!  😉

Our Jack Warner articles are 99% original journalism with referrals to other news sources. We did reprint a graphic though. Perhaps that is THE EXCUSE for ‘someone’ to complain.

We notice that Ian Bourne’s Bajan Reporter is still up with his Jack Warner bribery article

We’ll look at it in the morning, but right now I think we’ll reprint our original articles and leave out the graphic from the newspapers.

Then we’ll see what happens.

OH………  we’re going to reprint all our readers’ comments too!

Yup. We’ll obey the law. Right to the letter.

Here’s what we received from WordPress…
