Fighting for freerecyling

Is big brother watching your group?

You run a group and do so off your own bat using your own skills.  Then you receive a C&D notice from TFN.  This Big Brother has nothing better to do with its time than attack small groups using C&D notices.  If you or your group receive a Cease and Desist notice then what should you do?

  1. Complain using Yahoo’s Group Abuse Form citing harassment and then
  2. Report the offence to Chilling Effects as either a trademark or copyright issue.

Optionally you could reply to TFN.  Some people argue you should not reply.  The choice is yours.  Whatever you do you should not accept that they have any valid claims.
