Likelihood of baloney

IP Law Chat chats about how “paranormalist” charlatan Uri Geller got all bent out of shape over Brian Sapient, a member of the “Rational Response Squad,” posting a video debunking Geller’s nonsense on YouTube. Using the last refuge of scoundrels — a DMCA takedown notice (the video incorporated a few seconds of Geller’s own media) — Geller had the video removed.

The EFF has now responded on Sapient’s behalf to the effect that Geller should just plain get bent. They’ve sued his company for misuse of the DMCA. Yay.

UPDATE:  Resolved.
