I've complied with your DMCA compliant.


As you can see, offending content has been removed.

One item in particular cited in your complaint was not removed as it is a screenshot and not an original work by your client as stated.

Congratulations on a job well done. After 5 years this is the first DMCA complaint I've capitulated to.


And this is how we will handle people who press the delicate issue of their reserved rights, as of course they are entitled to by US law.
