And abuse of the DMCA to intimidate, too.

There seem to be a few of those. I suspect there’s lawyers whose job it is to look for copyright violations and sue. Janitors sometimes clean things that aren’t really dirty. Lawyers sometimes try to bring cases that aren’t really violations.

Dude! We absolutely know that corporations are people too (ask Mittens), which means, by fucking definition, that they are, by law, sociopaths. What were you expecting? Ethics, morality…sanity??

I really, really hope that there are no lawyers involved in the process of Universal submitting DCMA takedown notices to Youtube.

I can’t imagine any organisation would waste actual legally trained people on that kind of job.

It’s the sort of job that screams trained monkey or crappy bot.
