First of all, thank you for having the courage to speak up Matt. Since you’re in the know and I cannot seem to get to a human using your systems, I have a couple of questions for you.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act states in Section 512(c) that “If the provider has the right and ability to control the infringing activity, it must not receive a financial benefit directly attributable to the infringing activity.”

When my content is freebooted on Facebook, there are advertisements running in the sidebar of the page. Today you made money on my content from Juicy Fruit and The Urban Knight Jacket. When I submited a takedown request to you, you did not give me the money back that you made on my content. Where does the money go? Is Facebook acting illegally in conflict of Section 512(c) of the Digital Millenium Copyright act? Will you consider giving this money back to the content creator who has proven the work to be his/hers? If not, is this a violation of the law?

Again, thank you for having the courage to post here.

Warm Regards,
