0.00 KB/0.00 KB/--- Down For Good Lawsuit Threatened

Hello gals and guys,

We're very sorry having to tell you that we had to shut down EZT
forever just a couple of minutes ago.

We got a call from our provider, they had received a few letters
from a couple of lawyers. They requested EZT to be shut down
immediately, otherwise we'd be sued.

As you may imagine, we do not have the funds to fight a battle we
most probably can't win anyway.

We would like to thank everyone here for their contributions to EZT,
one way or the other, for sharing the music, sharing an ideal, for
all your mails, rants, praises...

I'm sorry, I'm still too shocked to write on... maybe later I'll
find some more words or my collegues will do...

To say it with Joan Armatrading:

We had fun, fun, fun, fun
fun, fun, fun, fun
we had fun -- while it lasted...
--"Tall in the Saddle"--

You all take good care!

I agree. I felt a real sinking feeling when I read the message. A big thankyou to the pwople who gave so much time to run it and the seeders who offered so much. Let's put all our support behind The Trader's Den and hope they get left alone.
Christ if the artists could see the amount I have spent over the years on their music.......!

Re: Down For Good Lawsuit Threatened

Just wanted to say 'hello' to all the fine folks over here. Yes, i'm a disenfranchised, in morning, (completely freakin' shocked) EZT member. I can't bring myself to say 'former', yet. Please be kind to us 'new' folks to your community. I'm sure you'll find the majority of us are an asset to your community and only share in a mutual love of music. Thanks for understanding in this vary sorrowful time. EZ was a great site with a good community ethos.

I apologize if i'm in the wrong thread with this. I'm just soo shocked.

Let me join the chorus in saying how much this sucks. I just hope The Trader's Den isn't the next one to be threatened.

I second that for the Fleetwood Mac 1975/1977 DVD . If someone could please seed that here, it would be wonderful. So sorry to hear about EZT.You`d think the RIAA would go after pirates and not collectors.
