Turn Your Old Tickets Into X-Wing Fighters

by Paul Strauss

xwing_origami

Have some old concert or train tickets lying around? With a little folding, some X-Acto knife skill and a whole lot of patience, you can turn those old tix into some tiny little X-Wing Fighters. Paper-master Hubert de Lartigue shows you how-to do it with a Paris METRO ticket here.

    Did you know that someone is duplicating content from your site and posting it elsewhere? The site lorrd.com appears to be dedicated to taking content tagged “star wars” from multiple feeds and then republishing it on its own site. This happened an article on my own site and I’m spreading the word to others. Here’s one article that they “borrowed”:

    http://www.lorrd.com/turn-your-old-tickets-into-x-wing-fighters/

    The site is hosted by VolumeDrive, so if you want to complain, you can file a DMCA takedown notice by emailing support@volumedrive.com. The DMCA takedown notice requires the ISP to remove the content (or lose their liability protection for copyright violations).

    An example takedown notice that you can copy-and-paste can be found here:
    http://futurequest.net/Services/TOS/DMCA/DMCANotice.php

    Another one is here (under the “ISP DMCA” link):
    http://www.mcanerin.com/EN/articles/copyright-03.asp

    If you end up doing anything, I would be interested in knowing about it.

      Thanks for the heads up. We’ve run into content scrapers stealing content a number of times, and most of the time haven’t had much luck getting it taken down. I’ll give the DMCA example a shot and see if that helps.
