I.E: The person either had the authority or __should__ have known that they did not have such authority, ball's in your court (no pun intended) now.
Keep on posting.
Umm... verbal permission doesn't count. I did not record the conversation. Although their recorded messages suggest that they did indeed record it, I doubt they would provide that recording to me so that I could challenge their takedown notice (should such an event ever occur).
As they say around here, "verbal agreements are as good as the paper they are written on"...
That is why I requested written permission to back up their verbal permission.
I really doubt that my claiming that their tech said "should be fine" consititutes legal permission and stands any chance of holding up in a court of law. I spent a significant amount of time studying constitutional law in past years, and my experience does not support your claim that my verbal permission is "good enough" in the USA. For my own personal comfort, I like things written down on paper with no "weasel-word" legalese.
