Gnudb.org a new home for the freedb.org database to make sure it stays free.
gnudb.org is under attack from Incopro Ltd. falsely accusing gnudb for hosting copyrighted audio tracks. They have send me an immediately cease and desist mail, which they also have send to the hosting company.
Read all the mails here. Should they succeed in getting our hosting company "Hetzner" to take gnudb.org down which I can not imaginate, there may be a outrage until I have found a solution.
I wish all of you a Happy New Year, with peace and joy, and continued right to free speech. I also send a great thank to all the supporters of gnudb.org.
In 2006 gnudb.org started hosting the cddb service to make sure that it would stay alive and free. Now 14 years later we have seen that Magix, the owner of freedb.org has decided to take the cddb service on freedb down (in 2020). As we stated in 2006 on gnudb.org "A new home for the freedb.org database to make sure it stays free.", we now have to stay to our promise and do our best to make sure it is available for all the music lovers.
It is now possible to post updates to gnudb.gnudb.org via mail and cgi script.
