As many of you know, SpoolStreet.com has been on the rise over the last year. Every single month has been a traffic record from Google and virtually all of the top news in the industry comes from our site or our group, N5X Enthusiasts which itself has been around for OVER 7 years! Here is our search engine traffic growth, nice and steady save for a server outage: As you can see, Google likes our site and our content and continues to trust us more with their traffic each month. With success typically will bring haters, and it seems that our newest addition to this list, is Mr Wilks from boost addict. It is our speculation that he is not favorable of our rise and it must be having some kind of effect and impact on the bottom line over on that site because he's taken the time out of his day to file a DMCA takedown of one of our recent posts. It is our opinion that his site may be suffering a reduction in traffic and activity which may be the motivating cause for this type of action. Here you can view the complaint with some identifying information redacted, because we are nice, though it is freely available online already: We're continually speaking to vendors about product availability and when things become public knowledge we post it. In the last days after having discussions about twin scroll bottom mount turbos, we inquired with Anthony @ ACF regarding the availability of their upcoming T4 turbo kit, as reported here: https://bmw.spoolstreet.com/threads/acf-fabrication-t4-twinscroll-manifold.2181/ And this is what we were told by Anthony himself: Afterward, I was informed by an associate of ACF that there were actually photos available for the product and this is the discussion which followed: And at this point, SpoolStreet refused to simply crop a watermark from a photo and instead we opted for the original source, which was provided to us: So as is apparent, we not only refused to use copyrighted works, but we obtained the original media directly from the source and the claims of editing photos without permission is absurd. Time and date stamps do not determine the source. And so it appears that before filing this claim, Mr Wilks did no due diligence by contacting ALL involved parties to identify if there was any infringement involved, and instead opted to use a slimey trick which is frankly, an abuse of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. In the meantime, we will continue to report the latest news while Mr wilks at bummerboost spends his time instead with seemingly pathetic attempts to stifle our growth. Stay tuned for more unreleased product announcements, we have several in our coat pockets!
