Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes time. Lots of time. Time is money. Visitors from banks' compliance departments, media, academia, and law enforcement, are encouraged to donate generously to our efforts. Media, lifting stuff from here and reprinting as breaking news, ought to remember how untenable it is to try to beat chronology. To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism and help us expose rampant corruption.

Majed Khalil Majzoud, Barrueco et al use DMCA to get Blogger to suppress information

London 26.07.2012 - Today, Blogger has sent me a Blog takedown notification. Given that I did not fall for the different impersonators, who through crude and rather infantile attempts tried to force me to take down perfectly valid and verifiable information (see herehere and here) about Ricardo Fernandez Barrueco, Majed Khalil Majzoud and other associates and frontmen of Diosdado Cabello, they have taken their game to Blogger, and, most unfortunately Blogger has fallen for it.
So I have republished the information about Ricardo Fernandez Barrueco and Majed Khalil Majzoud elsewhere, while I dispute in the strongest possible terms these attempts of criminal thugs to silence me and suppress publication of their illegal deeds in Venezuela.
This is exhibit A of Bolibourgeois chavistas using spurious copyright infringement allegations and impersonating other people in order to remove from the web information that compromises them and their activities. I know they are reading, so take this as public notice: this does not end here...

Update 28 August 2012: Google has sent another communication saying that the posts in questions have been reinstated. The posts are linked below.

Ricardo Fernandez Barrueco, Diosdado Cabello, the Khalil Majzoub brothers et al. discover online reputation management techniques.
