Take-down notices going after Microsoft Cofee
by Nicholas Deleon on November 23, 2009
The application suite made its way to cryptome.org, which is a site that’s â€œfamous for privacy activism and exposing various hacking, intelligence and secrecy related information.” (Cryptome’s actually a fun site, and one I visit at least a few times per month. Check it out.) A little while goes by, and Cryptome’s host gets a take-down notice. The host complies because, well, maybe it’s not worth losing risking every single site on your server rack just to host one file that’s already floating around the Internet in perpetuity.
And that’s the beauty of this: Microsoft can try all it wants to hide Cofee, but it’s too late; it’s out there. It’s fairly pointless, especially now that The Pirate Bay has moved to a tracker-less setup.
And if you’re wondering, yes, it’s a legal requirement that for every time we write about Microsoft Cofee, we have to put a photo of a cup of coffee.
