The Moby troubles of Friday 26 November. This is what happened.

Friday 26th November at 23.00 CET the Mobypicture.com, Moby.to and 147 other domains Mathys van Abbe registered got suspended by Sitelutions, the company we’ve been using for many years for domain name registration and DNS hosting.

A Mobypicture user has supposedly uploaded a copyrighted photo on our website. The company owning the rights of this picture has made a complaint and sent us a DMCA notice through Sitelutions.

Read the rest of the story on the Mobypicture blog.

We apologize for all the trouble this caused. We already made sure there were as less single-points-of-failure as possible in our architecture, but did not suspect DNS would be the cause of such severe downtime twice in 2 weeks. We will make sure this won’t happen again.

I don't care too much about politics but I think the rights she's fighting for are extremely important and awareness and demystification around the topics of the new Dutch political party Artikel 1 are crucial for achieving their goal.
