I recently received a message from 4Shared telling me that one of my ROM download links was terminated because 'leakid' reported it as copyrighted work. If they start doing that, it is the end of ROM creation and sharing as we know it. Is there any way to defend ourselves; or are we simply going to have to go to the underground?

If somebody knows 'leakid' can they make them come to their senses.

Here is the message that I got:

Your account has been reported to offer unlicensed copies of, or been
engaged in other unauthorized activities relating to copyrighted works.
Storing and sharing of such material violates proprietary rights of the
file copyright owner as well as 4shared Terms of Use.

The account has been reported due to the link:
http://4shared.com/file/127154049/d5723b82
The file was moved to the 'Abuse' folder then.

Please consult our Terms of Use which you have accepted by signing up for

have any remarks on the copyright abuse report or you feel the abuse was
reported by a mistake, please get in touch with the reporter via email [email protected]
and figure this out.

It has happened with Samsung Galaxy Mini and HTC Dream (G1) roms too. It looks like this LeakID is on a "DMCA spree", although the ROMs for the Galaxy Mini and the Dream had no copyrighted material whatsoever.

I guess this needs a bit of a public exposure.

First of all, since it was your file, unless you had copyrighted material in it, I recommend you get in touch with them and post their reasoning.
