GIZMODO | Ashley Madison Is Sending out Bogus DMCA Takedown Notices | August 27, 2015 | As the media and technologists sort through the deluge of information exposed by hackers from the extramarital affair site Ashley Madison, the company has taken to sending DMCA takedown notices in an attempt to prevent the general public from accessing the information via websites or social media. Clinical Fellow Andy Sellars and others view these actions as censorship attempts, because Ashley Madison cannot assert a copyright over the factual information published on websites designed to show whether someone’s personal information was compromised or Tweets about the substance of the leak.
