Copyright crusaders rejoice: the blog site that posts links to virtually every Queen album has apparently received a cease and decist letter from Queen. The following was posted on their main page:

"Abajo esta la cuente regreciva para el dia en que voy a cerrar el blog.
Les agradezco a todos por el apoyo y la colaboracion, un saludo grande y aguante Queen.

No hay duda de que voy a volver, pero con otro tema, nada que tenga copyright."

If anyone can translate it perfectly, please do so. With the help of Babelfish, it translates loosely into "Queen sent me a letter and I am shutting down, but will come back with a different topic that does not infringe copyright."

One of our own QZers shot an e-mail to Brian May's website alerting him of the blog just the other day. I hope he mentioned that he was from QZ, as this could go a long way to easing any pressure this site is feeling regarding the occasional posting of copyrighted material by mistake.

Great work!
