Cox has since put them back on the Deerhunter / Atlas Sound blog.
Update: On Mon., Nov. 29 Sony admitted its mistake when a spokesman told Billboard Magazine: "The Bradford Cox tracks were mistakenly removed. We advised Mediafire that the titles were mistakenly taken down. We have communicated all of this to Bradford Cox and his manager."
Along with the albums, Cox also included the messages he received referring to each of his blog posts, along with the phone number included with the messages, adding "Feel free to call or email and let them know what you think."
Cox also says "I can understand them requesting for me to remove a cover but the only one I can imagine that happening with is Dylan. Which was on Vol. 1. Which was not deleted."
That's just speculation, but it almost makes sense. Sony is the parent company of Columbia Records which is Bob Dylan's label. But again, the one volume of Bedroom Databank that was not deleted is the only one that contains a Dylan cover. So why did this happen? Did some sort of key word seeking software misfire? Who knows? But in the bigger picture, Sony claiming ownership of songs recorded in anyone's bedroom and posted on a blog is absurd, and Cox's label 4AD is in no way related to Sony.
I called the number listed in the message that he received hoping to find out why the posts were cut but was sent to a voice mail box.
In the meantime, all four volumes of Bedroom Databank have been reposted. Go get them before big brother strikes again.
