Submission + - DMCA used again to quash Black Friday ad

LexNaturalis writes: Best Buy has threatened to send a takedown notice to the ISP of Black Friday to remove its ad under the auspices of the DMCA. The site states that the owners "believe that sale prices are facts and not copyrightable, [but] we do not want to risk having this website shut down due to a DMCA take down notice." This is reminiscent of a similar story three years ago with the same aggressor but a different target.
