Important announcement from the staff of Weimar Dancefloor
During the last couple of weeks we have received two notifications regarding copyright infringements. These claims were made by IFPI (The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) and resulted in a bundle of songs being taken down by the tumblr staff.
There will be no new tracks posted until we have sorted this situation out.
Weimar Dancefloor does not support illegal sharing, downloading or copying of music, nor do we participate in such activities. All our material is from our physical record collections, from sources we’ve received from bands and artists themselves, downloaded from legal sources (such as Soundcloud), etc. Weimar Dancefloor does not provide or share music with anyone, publicly nor privately. The few download links we have provided contain legally shared music by the artists or record companies themselves.
All copyrights belong to their respective owners.
We will try to contact the tumblr staff in order to sort this situation out. But, if we can’t find a solution to these DMCA claims, we will not continue our work with Weimar Dancefloor in its current form.
We started this blog in order to share good tunes with our fellow music geeks without sharing files illegally. It is a matter of utmost importance for us to respect both the artists and the immaterial rights and laws concerning sharing music online. Because of this, these claims and the mere thought of having to shut Weimar Dancefloor down are incredibly saddening to both of us. We will keep you informed about the situation, and we promise to work a solution out as quickly as we can.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
