Submission + - Hollywood Studios Issue DMCA To Censor Pirate Bay Documentary

Aaron B Lingwood writes: As reported by TorrentFreak, Viacom, Paramount, Fox and Lionsgate have all asked Google to take down links pointing to the Pirate Bay documentary 'TPB-AFK'. The film, created by Simon Klose, is available for no cost and has already been watched by millions of people. The public response to this free release model has been overwhelmingly positive, but it’s now meeting resistance from Hollywood, TPB’s arch rival.

Pirate Party Australia opines 'Hollywood is using takedown notices to censor Pirate Bay doco, is it incompetence or malice? Always hard to tell'. Whichever the answer, the system is definately broken.

Executing random C code from somewhere on the net in a Browser is even dumber than doing the same with Java. Java at least has a security model, even if it's broken anew every week, and has more holes than a sieve. C on the other hand has nothing. It really is more or less like a portable Assembly Language as it was developed for.
