Controversial Use of Notice-and-takedown Provisions

Anti-coal group, Rising Tide, created a website sending up an advertising campaign by NSW Minerals Council. In response, the Council has used copyright laws to close the website.

Analysis by Kimberlee Weatherall (via Lawfont) is available at "Notice and takedown, Australian style".

Update: Commentary by Peter Black (Freedom to Differ) is available at "Copyright, Speech and the NSW Minerals Council".
