Hello, I am an artist and you have put a copy of my podcast up on your website without asking me for permission to do this, and without linking the work to either me or my website. I would appreciate your contacting me directly to discuss this. - - many thanks.

Your files are not stored on Huffduffer. From Huffduffer, people simply link to files. Nobody needs permission to link to anything on the web, whether it's a web page, an audio file, or anything else. That's a fundamental principle of the way the web works.

That said, I agree that it's better when people also provide a link to the original source, but this is up to the person doing the huffduffing (linking).

If it really bothers you, you can take steps at your end to prevent anybody linking to any of your files from outside your own domain (using an .htaccess file, for example).
