bq. Schwager had no idea who it belonged to or the license behind it.

So the only course of action was to use it?? How entitled sounding is you comment? A normal person would see that since you can't find the owner of the copyright don't fucking use it.

The takedown provision is the absolutely only good thing about the DMCA. I still hate the DMCA, but the take down provisions aren't that bad.

Contacting people on the internet NEVER works. It is a HUGE waste of time. The DMCA move is the proper way to do it. Be pissed at the ISPs if you want to be mad at someone. Or better yet the infringing person. It's not like he was suing the infringing person over using it. Get some perspective.

Ignorance may be annoying, but it doesn't mean someone "deserves" any misfortune.

Does that mean that no one deserves fortune either? Or if people deserve things because of actions they take, if someone deserves fortune because they worked hard, doesn't that suggest that the lazy and ignorant deserve misfortune?
