WordPress Wins $25,000 From DMCA Takedown Abuser

Although $25,000 is a paltry sun when it comes to stuff like this, at least the person abusing the DMCA takedown system lost the case.

WordPress has scored an important victory in court against a man who abused the DMCA to censor an article of a critical journalist. The court agreed that the takedown request was illegitimate and awarded WordPress roughly $25,000 in damages and attorneys fees.
