A DMCA takedown notice would not even apply here as we intentionally are
posting infringing material.

If it was not mentioned in the show notes, we would not have known and
if the DMCA take down came, I would have just done so. No problem.

There is a small industry of lawyers sending ISP's customers letters
demanding settlement sums in the 1-10K region. The logic is that people
are more likely to settle than go to court.

Back in the twat days and before there was no way to ever get noticed,
because the process of copyright enforcement was not automated. It is
now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shazam_(application)
