I really want Virgin to take down my old NTLWorld web site. The problem is that they have repeatedly said they would do so then done nothing. I'm no longer an NTL customer and have no access to it - one of the reasons why I'm no longer a customer is that they cut off FTP access while I was still a customer and couldn't be arsed to fix it. So I can't delete or modify files, the only content I control is the "Forgotten Futures news" blog that it accesses. At the moment every post I make there has to end with a warning NOT to use the old site, since it's woefully out of date and files may be corrupt or contain viruses. This has been a problem for a while, but with the end of shareware distribution of Forgotten Futures it's really important to put a stake through it.
The trouble is that there seems to be no mechanism to do this - I've considered a DMCA takedown letter, but since I put the content there in the first place that seems a bit iffy. Now I'm wondering about some other form of legal action - preferably something I can do cheaply! A solicitor's letter is one possibility, I suppose, but even that would cost a few quid.
