I'm flattered that our music is valuable enough to "steal" like this...

Looks like someone did some random raiding of our content back in Fall 2010 for a (now seemingly abandoned) free radio site...
So I googled my username tonight (like you do) and saw that Real Talk to Meffy
was posted on this site
. It looks like the scraping starts in 9/2010 and ends 12/2010. There are a bunch of MeFiMu song there, and the comments on the songs link back here.
The language is Portuguese; the site was registered by proxy according to whois. Likely Brazillian in origin.
I imagine it was some low level employee tasked with finding free music to seed the site. I base this on the user's attributed content.
I'm not calling for any action on Mefi's part, especially since it isn't an ongoing problem. I thought I would point it out, though.
