Science Fiction Writers of America abuses the DMCA – Boing Boing

First the RIAA then the MPAA and now the SFWA are abusing the DMCA. This is a good read about a bad problem that isn’t going away and in fact seems to be getting a LOT worse.

The one good thing that I noted as I finished reading the article is that Boing Boing now has comments! At last!

Several of the comments about this latest atrocity are by Sci-Fi writers and for the most part they aren’t at all pleased by the actions of the SFWA. Only one (at the time I read this prior to posting) thought it was a good thing but the guy didn’t give his full name so who knows if it was an actual author or just a troll.

As much as I hate lawyers, I think the authors that have been affected by this stupid act need to file suit against the SFWA and the person who caused this. Don’t know if it will do any good but it might add a bit more fuel to the anti-DMCA movement.
