99U dug up this fantastic interview with James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem) that covers feeling like a failure in your late 20’s and how to deal with it. It’s something I really wish I’d heard when I was floundering hard a few years ago.
Over the past few months, I’ve had to help several clients file DMCA takedown notices. Yeah, I think the DMCA stinks. But it’s also the most expedient option for squashing content scrapers and self-titled “curators” who don’t spend a lot of time worrying about things like attribution.
Anyhow, because of this, I keep finding myself in need of a well-crafted — but still fairly generic — DMCA takedown notice template. Which normally means I have to do a quick Google search for one. And then I have to spend a bunch of time doing boring, time-consuming find & replace work.
Hope someone out there finds it useful!
Note to Self: Stop saying that you’re “busy” when people ask about the things that are happening in your life. Everybody is busy.
Besides, it’s a boring fucking answer. And it makes you sound like a real asshole too.
