For some reason this topic has built up an epic level of FUD.

Their system was designed to be used in response to DMCA notices. Dropbox would get a takedown notice, they'd flag the file to be removed, and an e-mail would be sent to the uploader of the file informing them of the DMCA notice.

In this case, a dropbox guy used the tool without realising that the last step was automated. There was never any DMCA notice generated, just a DMCA notice notice.

As someone living in KY I *already* have to pay sales tax on Amazon purchases -- they have several warehouses here. If you're for the elimination of all sales tax, ok, that's a consistent POV. But I don't think there's any reason to treat internet sales any differently than in-store.
