what was the offending clip?...not exactly sure but it was from Namie...so what do we do from here?..do we delete all the music clips found on YODC or take the chance that blogger doesn't hit us with another notice?..not sure..will have to discuss with the other YODCers

UPDATE:

we got a second notice and it looks like they're targeting ALL the Namie related download clips...and that absolutely breaks my heart :( ..Not my Namie!!!...wonder if its an Avex thing?..JpopKpop was hit with the same notice a few weeks ago over a Koda Kumi download and they've since gone to being an "invite only" blog

If we don't comply then that is like a doomsday scenario for YODC.
