A while back Genus was hit with a DMCA notice and had to close. They came back a few days ago. Today they had to close down again due to another DMCA. I am going to say that this does hurt the customers of Genus as much as the creators.
As they have asked everyone:
- to not speculate
- keep the conversation limited to just telling people about the DMCA,
- direct all comments about the DMCA to their representatives and/or the discord channel
I am going to do that. They released a group notice on July 9, 2020 that in part stated,
While we had hoped the DMCA business was behind us, we have received another notice from Linden Labs that we must remove our inventory and our store. As we have not been given info regarding who initiated this the first time, we are left to assume it is the same person and that it is someone with no actual claim.
