Dropbox - takedown request under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
I installed Editorial for the first time and received the following message within the Editorial app when synchronising with my Dropbox
An error occurred while downloading /
txt/Hello Calum I love you.txt: This file
is no longer available due to a
takedown request under the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act by Open
This is a personal file. It has no content except for a "."
The file exists in my Dropbox account and on my Mac. I don't really see why this would be a Dropbox issue. Is it a bug in Editorial?
The message was repeated again today.

So it's a Dropbox thing. I don't understand it as my files aren't available to anyone else, I mean I haven't shared the link (and I have a load of music stored anyway). Thanks anyway.
I would like to repeat here my Feature Request from last year for any scrambling or Boxcryptor support ...
Using the very comfortable DropBox cloud lacks of security from spying eyes.
BoxCryptor implements some easy way of using encryption (and on PC even transparent file system integration).
I'am really searching for any (at best transparent) encryption solution inside Editorial before! saving to DropBox.
One simple attempt could be zipping with password and applying zip/unzip transparently into DropBox-stream. That zip and encrypt option ... will not cause problems in file handling on PC or Mac.
A general zip & encrypt module (plus base64 translation) will be usefull also for integration in e-mail workflow.
Further hints quickly found:
decryption / extraction ...do not know, how to use and integrate those findings.
Quite another attempt to think about might be Apples Passbook file type .pkpass and API.
It's a zip container of text and image files (think of markdown and referenced figures)
Important for/inside that container are a JSON definition file plus signature (pass code).
@oghh using BOXCRYPTOR destroys the usefulness of Dropbox.
Second if you feel the need to encrypt your files, then use SpiderOak, or use a server you control.
Anything else is pointless, no matter how much hysteria you post.
