Tumblr Copyright Violation

Any of you guys received any type of Tumblr Copyright Violation email? Well, I just got one:

So, apparently, I posted a photo of an actor that was publicly shared on IMDb and it got reported as a copyright violation. I don’t get it. Should I even email Tumblr Support about it? But, then, again, they literally copied/pasted the IMDb filmography link of that actor! I can only guess that the actor found his photo being shared in a gay-related blog and it suddenly it became copyright infringement.

Apparently the motto, “there is no such thing as bad publicity*” is not really true.
