+ - GitHub Sends DMCA Counternotice to Sony->

Submitted by Plombo
Plombo (1914028) writes "After receiving a second DMCA takedown notice from Sony demanding the takedown of another repository related to PS3 homebrew, GitHub sent a counternotice. In addition to the standard legalese about how the repository doesn't infringe on Sony's copyrights, it notes that "Sony is attempting to abuse the DMCA to avoid public embarrassment (too late) and put the genie back in the bottle (too late), and has failed to meet the minimum requirements for giving DMCA notice (no details provided on which source code lines infringe copyright). the exposure of sloppy crypto implementation on Sony's part in no way infringes on copyright or makes available any of their proprietary internal software".

Shortly before the counternotice for the second takedown notice was posted, GitHub recieved a third DMCA takedown notice from Sony demanding the removal of 1160 Git repositories, most of them forks of fail0verflow's PS3 tools. Most, although not all of them have been removed."
