I would tell him not to worry Rachel.

Media Sentry no longer exists.

>From the Wiki Entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaSentry

In August 2009, ARTIST direct restructured MediaDefender and
MediaSentry, creating Peer Media Technologies.

And from their web site only 404's.

I don't think take-down notices from non-existing entities are
enforceable ands specifically under Australian ASIC regulations, have
zero legal standing.

If the Content industry insist on using non-existing entities to carry
out their enforcement actions, there must be a deniable reason for doing
so and in my opinion should be given the credibility due a non-existent
company. That is, NIL.
