Submission + - Company uses the DMCA to silence criticism on Web->

Greg Beck writes: "This homebuilding company invoked the DMCA to take down a website that criticized its business practices, while the company's motion to shut down the site was still pending in court. The company claimed that the website infringed its copyright by posting an image the company included as an exhibit to its own complaint, publicly filed in Ohio court. The article examines how it is becoming increasingly common for companies to use the DMCA to shut up critics without having to go to court, thereby bypassing any First Amendment right to speak the truth."
