ESA Goes All Fahrenheit 451 on Kotaku, Threatens Suit

Kotaku's Brian Crecente writes that the ESA today sent them a copyright infringement notice.

"Really not that big a deal because, besides referring to us as Jalopnik, the image in question is of a screenshot of a Wii service update for a story that ran in August about some routine update hitting the Wii.

My issue isn't with the stupidity of the notice, or the amount of my time it wastes. My issue is with all of the other sites that the Intellectual Property Enforcement folks at the Entertainment Software Association strong-arm into taking down legitimate news stories because they don't have the understanding of the law or the time to deal with bogus complaints."

The story is too old to be commented.

I've never been a fan of Kotaku, but I have to side with them on this one -- this is just ridiculous.

but as far as the article goes, that seems like a severe waste on time on everyones end. and probably a waste of money too

Ray Bradbury, great author.

Kotaku is entertaining enough in a National Enquirer way, but I don't care for them or their writers.

someone should give the ESA something to do. They're apparently bored out of their wits.
