Anti-war activist's works banned at prison camps

,----[ Quote ]
| Prison camp officials would not say 
| specifically why the book was rejected but 
| Navy Lt. Cmdr. Brook DeWalt, a GuantÃnamo 
| spokesman, said staff reviews "every 
| proposed or recommended library item to 
| assess force protection issues associated 
| with camp dynamics -- such as impact on 
| good order and discipline.''
| The banned book showed the bespectacled 
| professor-emeritus at the Massachusetts 
| Institute of Technology in button-down 
| shirt and sweater staring out of a black 
| cover of a 2007 edition printed by a Beirut 
| publishing house.

Ralph Lauren And Its Lawyers Discover The Streisand Effect On Bogus DMCA Takedown

,----[ Quote ]
| Boing Boing put up a post about it, along with the tag
| line "Dude, her head's bigger than her pelvis." While
| some have questioned whether the ad is even real, one
| thing is clear: Ralph Lauren was not pleased. The
| company's lawyers at Greenberg Traurig sent DMCA takedown
| notices concerning both posts. Despite Blogger's new DMCA
| policy, Google still quickly took down the post at
| Photoshop Disasters, causing the site to ask whether or
| not Ralph Lauren or its lawyers have ever heard of the
| Streisand Effect (yay). BoingBoing's host, however,
| doesn't automatically take content down and passed along
| the info to BoingBoing, who quickly pointed out that this
| was clearly fair use (commentary, criticism, etc.) and
| the DMCA takedown wasn't being used to stop infringing
| content, but to stifle speech.
