Acephoto Reporting Manics Tumblr Users for Copyright Violation

Hey folks,

If any of you have posted or reblogged Manic Street Preachers photos to Tumblr in the past or recently, be aware that someone or Acephoto themselves is going on a reporting spree that could put your entire Tumblr account in jeopardy. I received a warning earlier this month, listing only the URLs and not showing the pictures in question. I received another warning today. I have set these Manics blogs to private right now since I'm not sure which photos are the ones that are problematic...I wish I knew which photos this was in regards to, but I don't. Does anyone know what photo sets they own the rights to? I would hate to have to delete ALL of the Manics content from my sites. The message is below.
(Please read this entire message carefully. Copyright violation is a complex issue, but one we take seriously. Understanding how we address it will greatly reduce the risk of your account being terminated.)
We've received a notification of alleged copyright infringement on one of your blogs. Here are the details of the content in question:
Copyright holder: na na (Acephoto)
Post URL(s):
Description: notice includes photographs of bands and musicians used without permission
The content has since been removed, in accordance with US law and Tumblr's own copyright policies.
Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we are legally required to terminate the accounts of repeat infringers. The first strike against your account was uncontested, meaning this is your second strike and final warning. If you receive three uncontested strikes within an 18 month period, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE TERMINATED. You can contest this notification by following the instructions for a "DMCA Counter-Notification" found here: A successful counter-notification will remove the strike against your account.
Here are the details of the previous strike against your account:
Date of Takedown: April 7th , 2015
Post URL(s): <ul><li></li><li></li><li></li><li></li><li></li><li></li><li></li><li></li></ul>
Copyright holder: na na (Acephoto)
You can review Tumblr's Terms of Service ( and Community Guidelines ( for more information on our copyright policies.
This is a good opportunity to learn more about US copyright law (never a bad idea, really) and to make sure none of your other posts are infringing on someone's copyright. Here are a few free resources you might want to look over:
