Why? Because all the albums listed here are from my Multiply-account, and has been requested to be taken down by Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp - as apparently I had infringed on their intellectual property rights - specifically for X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE.

ADDED (For further clarification):
WHAT-HAPPENED: A Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) request was received by Multiply.com from Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp (TCFFC) for me to take down / remove the said listed photo-albums. Access on the albums have been changed to be viewable by me only, for me to remove said album. Multiply.com has mentioned that they reserve the right to cancel my account if another violation has been discovered.
Upon my reply to Multiply customer-service, a specific contact email for the lawyer representing TCFFC was provided, for me to dispute the allegations - for which an email has been sent by myself over a week ago. Multiply had initially mentioned that if they receive word from TCFFC that they will reinstate my albums. Then they mention that resolution would be via me receiving a reply and/or confirmation from TCFFC's lawyers.

A week has gone by since my email to their lawyer with an appeal to retract these baseless accusations, but frankly, should I even expect a reply? Tis one thing if I had indeed perpetrated a justified cyber-violation, but another when there is none that had transpired. The screengrabs posted here are of the specific albums which are in contention. Will I ever receive a reply from you, Ms Chai?
Realistically, I am not naive to think that anyone really cares if an honest mistake had been made or not. Or if an innocent has been accused of wrongdoing. The corporate wheels roll on, regardless of who they grind underneath them. So what else can I do but blog about it here? The images in question are personal images that I had taken, in relation to my hobby, and passion for the hobby.
And I am wondering, am I the only bloke stuck in this situation?
For sure the popcorn will continue to pop, butter will floweth down the theatre-aisles, and cash registers will chime away - the tills they are a'ringin'! Folks will queue up to watch the mutant berserker snikt his claws, and scrowl like an animal he is trying not to be ... who would care about the little folk? Who blogs like a sand-pebble amidst the vast expense of the desert-www?
Will this post change anything? I am not so naive to think it would, but neither will I just lay down and whimper quietly to myself and sob to sleep... and so I blog about it, tis all I can do, innit?
Goodbye "Logan" and all at Weapon-X, it was fun while it lasted.

[FYI: All the images on the albums were taken by myself - and photographed in Singapore, and were posted in the year 2006]
