"Landmark Digital Services sends C&D

"About a week ago I received the following email about this project.

"Mr. van Rijn,

"I am Darren Briggs, the Chief Technical Officer of Landmark Digital Services, LLC. Landmark Digital Services owns the patents that cover the algorithm used as the basis for your recently posted "Creating Shazam In Java". While it is not Landmark's intention to alienate those in the Open Source and Music Information Retrieval community, Landmark must request that you do not ship, deploy or post the code presented in your post. Landmark also requests that in the future you do not ship, deploy or post any portions or versions of this code in its current state or in any modified state.

"We hope you understand our position and that we would be legally remiss not to make this request. We appreciate your immediate attention and response."
