Andrew generally tries to keep with the spirit of holidays (i.e., Christmas clad Lanterns).

I'm thinking he is keeping the first day of April in the same light....

I just read over some information forwarded from Andrew. This is, in fact, true.
Apparently, they finally did take notice of us, and were surprisingly unhappy.

The obvious copyright infringement of images and the various copyrighted videos that were illegally posted on youtube that we went ahead and posted on our news page (like the New Frontier preview, which was directly mentioned in said contact) has lead DC/WB to this decision. Thus the board will be shut down along with the site at the end of the week.

Totally bogus!

Why is it that they have to begrudge the fans the right to have a DECENT messageboard to go to, to talk about our favorite comic?

So, any plans to create another forum under a different name?

All this stuff here is fair use, as long as no one makes any money off of it, or mispresents the material (i.e., putting GLs in porn videos).

And just in case you guys ain't playin', my brother is a brilliant patent attorney. I'm sure he could get a stay of execution....

DC are just jealous that this place is so much better and cooler than the official DC boards ...

I'm sure another forum will pop up though ...

We're currently trying to get ahold of DC to discuss this, don't get your hopes up, but we're going to try to reason with them.

We're not the only site. Shortly after I recieved an email from the guys over at the Superman Homepage confirming that they, too, had recieved a similar cease and desist order, Jim got through and spoke to a WB representative and tehy confirmed that they were seeking to shut down quite a few fansites. They also gave us the number to WB's legal department... like I said before, don't get your hopes up. It's more than likely curtains, as Andrew says.

I'm trying to explain that the board made no money and we would be happy to delete GLKING's threads and user profile.
