Yikes...

I've just heard that the IAAO site has been suspended for 'copyright infringement'... Is this due to Hardcore Junglism?

Yes, suggest someone warns them!

I've seen the complaint and it is all about copyright and his clients losing money etc.

tuneid is still up. I wouldn't put it past him to try getting them in trouble for 15 seconds recordings off mangled old tapes.
What is the bloke trying to achieve. Does he really think any of the oldskool community will buy anything from him when he's shutting down the sites which built and supported the community in the first place.
