Giganews Data Foundry DMCA Takedown
Sent: Thu Sep 18 2014 23:22:32 GMT-0400 (Eastern Standard Time)
I just received an email from the Internet Archive that the Data Foundry
(which, according to Mr. Caputo, is interconnected to Giganews) has filed
a copyright claim on the giganews-fbi file. Apparently the Giganews/Data
Foundry folks are not very happy about being exposed. Since you've dealt
with matters like this before, I seek your advice: should I appeal this copyright
claim, or would it be a waste of time?
If you wish, I have attached the original ZIP file containing the two lists,
in case you wish to re-upload it.
P.S. You may of course rename the file to giganews-fbi or giganews-fbi-01
