“Content owners should, as a general matter, avoid issuing DMCA or other informal takedown notices for uses of their content that constitute fair uses or that are noncommercial, creative, and transformative in nature.”

This is a principle of free speech in a free society. It’s NOT theft… it’s art, culture and the functioning of an open society.

Lane should be ashamed of taking down valid art for misguided commercial bias.
