Keeping You Updated: Communications with Tumblr’s General Counsel [⇒]
Last week, as per my request, I received an official written communication from Tumblr’s General Counsel requesting I comply with their requirements for Missing e. While this letter did not specifically mention the punitive action of deleting my personal Tumblr account if I do not stop distribution (as I was told would be their recourse in a conference call with Tumblr staff two weeks ago), it did outline some specific issues that the company has with Missing e.
I do not agree with their interpretation of their own policies and the applicability of the Tumblr API License Agreement, and I replied as such. However, I have also made some changes to the extension based on their feedback and attempted to correct what I believe are misconceptions evident in some of the other claims they make regarding Missing e. I have also requested more information regarding the grounds for which they will delete my personal account for what are purported to be violations of their API License Agreement, as this action is not based on that agreement.
In the interest of transparency, I have published this email exchange on the Missing e website for users and other interested parties to read. Please note that the discussion (for my part, at least) is ongoing.
