Rush Limbaugh is invoking the evil, statist DMCA to block this compilation video from The Daily Kos:
Deal is, Kos posted this video on Youtube. Limbaugh invoked the DMCA to have Youtube take it down. Youtube complied.
Kos immediately reposted at Vimeo.
Kos quite rightly says:
This isn’t 1823, no matter how much Limbaugh might wish it so. He gets the video pulled from one place, it’ll simply pop up somewhere else. If he really wants it offline, he’s going to have to meet us in court. And even that won’t do the trick.
That darn First Amendment will get in his way.
Rush, as often as I agree with many of your sentiments on this matter, swinging the DMCA hammer makes you an idiot. What were you thinking?
No, I’m not being ironic. No, I’m not making fun of Kos. No, I’m not parodying anybody’s manner of speaking.
You are an idiot for doing this. Plain and simple.
Stop embarrassing yourself, and those of us who agree with you.
