Lionsgate’s malicious campaign now apparently defeated
Today brings the long-awaited notice from Google confirming that the only outstanding URL in dispute has now been reinstated. All the malicious complaints of DMCA infringement made by Lionsgate and its agent(s) have been thrown out. This has been four months of frustration with daily page hits reduced by half. Hopefully, the popularity of the site will now be restored. As I wait, I must also decide whether to take it further. It’s tempting to let sleeping dogs (or lions) lie and go back to life as it was. Albeit slowly, I have prevailed so I could call this a draw and walk away. Or I could remain active and seek a more general review of Lionsgate’s behaviour and its agent(s). It requires careful thought.
