The Null Device
Welcome to the Digital Millennium:
A medical research company has used the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
to silence an animal-liberationist group's web site
Huntingdon Life Sciences, by no means the darlings of the animal-rights set,
have claimed that Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty's site infringes its
copyright, which gives the ISP (which provides free hosting to nonprofits) a choice of either pulling the site within
24 hours or face massive legal liability; and under the DMCA, the ISP has no
discretion to judge whether the claim is valid or not.
Nice; as someone else commented, when all you have is a club, everything looks
like someone's skull.
