Really really stupid.
TechDirt reports that a firm working on behalf of 20th Century Fox issued a link takedown notice (yes, this is something they can do) to Google that asked for a link to an SFGate article be removed. The reason? It was infringing on Fox’s film Chronicle’s copyright.
SF Gate is, for those who don’t know, the website of the newspaper the San Francisco Chronicle. One of the oldest papers on the west coast.
This is not only silly, but dangerous.
