Sorry that this is not a chapter update, but events in the last few days has compelled me to take action. FFN has deleted a story called "Harry Potter and the Nightmares of Futures Past" by S'TarKan aka ViridianDreams from this site. It has been claimed that the story had copyrigthed material that did not belong to him. This is false as the story contained NO copyrighted song lyrics. This is the post from Viridiandreams dot net.
" FFN deleted NOFP
May 21, 2019 by Matthew Schocke
Just an FYI:
The AuthorLord would like to inform you that deleted Harry Potter and the Nightmares of Futures Past. He received an email stating that it had been removed because it had copyrighted material that he did not own. There was a note specifying song lyrics. Harry Potter and NOFP doesn't have any copyrighted song lyrics. The only song lyrics are from some original verses that I (runsamok) wrote for the sorting hat to sing, which was used with permission. The AuthorLord is appealing the decision with and it will likely take a few weeks for them to respond."
I have sent an email to support as that is the only way I can see to get in contact with them and complain about this travesty. I have threatened to delete all my works and encourage everyone else to do so if they do not restore Matthew Schocke's brilliant work (which has also been mentioned in a TIME Magazine article if I recall) and issue a public apology as soon as possible, as well as reprimand the idiot responsible for making that decision to remove the works. What I am curious to know is who is the b-hole that made a copyright claim on the story?
I encourage everyone here, every one of the fans of Harry Potter and the Nightmares of Futures Past to make as much noise as possible about this until this wrong is righted.
Live Long and Prosper,
