This morning Gitorious received a DMCA takedown notice from Sony. The notice addressed quite a few repositories on gitorious.org that are hosting various PS3 related code. Norwegian law commands us to respond to such notices by removing potentially copyright infringing content until it’s legality can be fully clarified.
For that reason, some of you have just now had your repositories removed from Gitorious – you should also have received an email explaining why.
Please note that the takedown notice also calls for Gitorious to disclose identities and private data about the users in question. According to our attorney we are not required under Norwegian law to provide such information, and will not comply to this part of the notice.
