Hi Michael. I noticed 4 days ago (Thur. the 28th) that I couldn't get in. I tried again on Friday and Saturday, still nothing. Well, maybe it died a natural death,..or maybe someone
bought it ?
(crosses fingers),...It would be so cool if it was restored to it's former glory but I won't hold my breath. It's more likely that it was purchased by,...or maybe it just got severely hacked.
It sucks because the reason I was trying to get in 4 days ago was to make a list of all my vids there so I could start looking for my originals to archive. Oh well. I have an awful lot of tapes to search through now I guess.

After all the crap going on for two years and people demanding the money they were owed.... maybe the copyright issue is their undoing:

No matter. It is a changing landscape in a cloud.

make sure you make that computer do most of the searching, thank you baby!
Me too!

for once I'm not embarrassed to share this text moment with whom the Ark community
would suffer in your absence. Thank you for adding spine in my life!
thank you brother.

LiveUniverse, Inc. and its owner Brad Greenspan:

Dear Brad,
You and (speaking for the rest of the known "Live Universe") everyone involved
(You know who you are) HAD A GREAT RIDE!
I wouldn't have found my lost little ass way here to the Ark (home) with out you.
Thank you Brad. I hope your not walking to funny after Warner/Chappell is finished
with the Judgements.

this is the rest of the story thank you Chiq for staying in touch with your inner female and she's a lesbian from what you've told me.

A Federal Court judge has found that LiveUniverse, which owns websites that display song lyrics, in contempt of court for failing to comply with its May 24 injunction to remove infringing unlicensed material from its websites.

The injunction came out of an action by Peermusic, Warner/Chappell and Bug Music, which filed a lawsuit against LiveUniverse, Inc. and its owner Brad Greenspan in the Federal Court of the Central District of California in August 2009 for willful copyright infringement on a vast scale.

The contempt order from District Court Judge George H. Wu requires LiveUniverse to disable its,,, and, until all infringing material is removed and verified by the court, according to the court documents. If the takedown is not complete within 48 hours, LiveUniverse and Greenspan may be subject to further contempt sanctions, including monetary sanctions of $100,000 for each website not disabled.

"The Court's action is consistent with copyright law and precedent, and should serve as a reminder to web operators who attempt to profit from copyrighted works without a license," National Music Publishers' Assn. president and CEO David Isrealite said in a statement. "Such activity will not be tolerated. Licenses are available from multiple sources and the legal marketplace is thriving. There is simply no excuse to fail to license music content."

The Federal Court that filed a preliminary injunction ordering LiveUniverse to remove infringing copyrighted material from its websites in May this week

Last August, Peermusic, Warner/Chappell and Bug Music filed copyright infringement lawsuits against LiveUniverse, Inc. and its owner Brad Greenspan.

For the past three years, the NMPA has sent cease and desist notices to hundreds of illegal sites, providing multiple warnings and opportunities for the site operators to license the content and operate legally. These efforts have resulted in a reduction of illegal sites, as many of those contacted have either ceased operation or taken licenses.

Wow. R.I.P LV

That would be pretty cool if it rose from the dead under new ownership. The functionality of that site was rock and roll.

you already shut down our L'Universe. I'd hate to see what you'd do if you ever got upset.

I'm not as attached to my videos as I used to be. I've saved the ones that held the most meaning for me, but what's sad is that LV had so much potential. What a waste.

LV has been under siege by hackers lately, wonder if they brought it down. Sad to see the place go, but maybe someone will resurrect it. It had a lot of potential.
