    ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ Seriously though, this is probably about the best example of how totally screwed up the DMCA actually is. It also casts a bad light on how Google handles these things. How even their automated system got fooled by this is beyond me. It makes AVG look like an idiot as well. All around terrible and completely unnecessary situation.

    Never gonna give up my Rickrolls. They can have them when they pry them from my cold, dead, bartending, wall-climbing, back-flipping hands.

    This is what I get with that link. This error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but it does not have permission to view the webpage.
