Google Shuts Down Music Blogs Without Warning

Story : http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/feb/11/google-deletes-music-blogs

In what critics are calling "musicblogocide 2010", Google has deleted at least six popular music blogs that it claims violated copyright law. These sites, hosted by Google's Blogger and Blogspot services, received notices only after their sites – and years of archives - were wiped from the internet.

"We'd like to inform you that we've received another complaint regarding your blog," begins the cheerful letter received by each of the owners of Pop Tarts, Masala, I Rock Cleveland, To Die By Your Side, It's a Rap and Living Ears. All of these are music-blogs - sites that write about music and post MP3s of what they are discussing. "Upon review of your account, we've noted that your blog has repeatedly violated Blogger's Terms of Service ... [and] we've been forced to remove your blog. Thank you for your understanding."

This is the trouble with your data being the the cloud...
Someone else has the power to delete, edit, or transfer your content or information to another.
Knowledge is power. Power corrupts. Study hard. Be evil.
