Submission + - Microsoft serves takedown notices to videos not infringing on anything (wired.com)

mrnick writes: Microsoft serves youtube takedown notices on many youtube videos that do not appear to have any DRM issue.

Submission + - GoDaddy's DNS Servers Down, Hacked by Anonymous? (mashable.com)

mrnick writes: "After noticing that my domain could not be resolved, I checked whois and then queried GoDaddy's DNS directly. I received no response so I tried to login to their control panel, but their page did not load either.

Doing a quick Google I found an article that states GoDaddy is aware of the problem and trying to fix it. The article goes on to describe tweets that seem to indicate that this is the result of an Anonymous attack.

If this is true, this is the first time an Anonymous attack has affected me directly. My site is not hosted at GoDaddy, but I have my domain registered there. Ugh!"

He slept on a couch, took showers and washed clothes in the office gym, and ate for free in the cafeteria all the while working on his new start-up. He was able to get away with this for two months before being discovered by security guard."
