Who knows, maybe someone who managed to get it will put it somewhere else and the natural order of the internet will take over (if it was online it's never gone and all that). Screw CBS though, there's tons of sites with active links to rips of everything on the BluRay release, if they're going to spend time targeting a fanedit over those they have warped priorities.
rewak said:I get that part of it, i just think there are much larger threats to their property going untouched and if they really did give that much of a damn they would maybe distribute their efforts a little better. The first edit was promoted on a TP fansite pretty unwisely but not the second, which means they've watched this thread specifically. So i'm just saying hello CBS! Go target things that aren't fan efforts born from pure enjoyment and love that operates solely on the basis of support of your property.
Q2 said:After discussing it with a couple people I trust, I have decided that this edit will remain offline indefinitely. The reason for this is because CBS has sent takedown notices to .info, MEGA, and MySpleen, and I don't want to be responsible for these sites, any other site, or myself from being harassed by CBS's laywers. Obviously CBS is very protective of FWWM at this juncture (I read about how much work they had to go through securing the rights, so I don't blame them) and are passionate about stopping this edit from getting out there.
I love Twin Peaks, and I still don't think this edit would stop anyone from buying the boxset, but CBS feels differently. While I would much rather have had them be like, "Hey... you know we put a lot of work into getting FWWM out to you guys, could you help us out by removing this?" I can't help but take their threats seriously. I will honor their wishes.
So thank you for the support on this project. I'm sorry I can't share it with you, but that's the way it goes.
