Stop claiming copyrights on routing numbers and harassing Greg Thatcher

Thatcher received an absurd copyright takedown notice from the American Bankers Association claiming the ABA owns copyright to routing numbers. For full details see the TechDirt article http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130621/13594123566/american-bankers-association-claims-routing-numbers-are-copyrighted.shtml
