DMCA Notices - Handle With Care

DMCA notices - notification to a web site or web hosting company of possible infringements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act - are causing quite a bit of churn these days, and the sometimes sweeping nature of the resulting accommodations can be drastic. In one recent example, educational publisher Pearson issued a DMCA request regarding a survey published in a page of an Edublogs education-related blog from 2007. Edublogs removed the page, but their web host ServerBeach apparently got squirrelly and pulled all the Edublogs content offline for a time (over a million blogs), reportedly to verify compliance. The original blog referenced by the DMCA notice has reportedly been marked as "spam" and is now unavailable.
