I woke up this morning with the following message in my inbox.

To Whom it may concern,

Please immediately and permanently remove or disable access to the University of Melbourne logo

The University of Melbourne logo was copied onto your servers without permission and is being used in preview links for the offending website as well as the favicon. The unauthorized and infringing copy can be found at: https://melbuniblog.com/ The source url of the relevant images infringing on our copyright are:<LINK>

I may be contacted at the address, email and phone number listed above.

I have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. Under penalty of perjury, I am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed The information in this notification is accurate. I understand that, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be liable for damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees.

Good to see how efficient the university is. It only took almost 5 years until I started this blog to get in touch.

Oh, and I did indeed change the logos to meet their humble demands.
