I’ve been doing some work today on extraction of ID3 metadata from audio files, and I noticed that id3.org is currently a squatter site. Search engines still point at it for ID3-related queries, so I assume this is a relatively recent event. Does anyone know what happened?
The whois info says it’s registered by “Domain Privacy Group,” an operation in Burlington, Mass., with an invalid HTTPS certificate and a secretive website. The last change to the domain registration was pretty recent, on October 2, 2012.
I see the same problem here.
Could anyone contact the former website owner?
Do they know that fact?
The only way I’ve found of contacting the owner is through ID3.org, which doesn’t help now.
