DMCA – Dumb Management of Copyright Accusations?

Fleet week! 26

Not every big stick makes sense in every context

Idiotic DMCA takedown notices:  They’re all the rage.  Tim Bukher links to this item from Mike Masnick, riffing on some of the “best of” DMCA takedown notices published by Google and initially combed through for brickheadedness by TorrentFreak.  Meanwhile, Jonathan Bailey anoints GoDaddy.com “DMCA Overreactor Extraordinaire.”

Follow that?

Tim notes that this may be the by-product of “automated” or otherwise outsourced-to-non-lawyers IP enforcement programs or firms.

That’s giving lawyers a lot of credit for non-dumbness, wouldn’t you say?
