Twitter Complies With DMCA Takedown Requests

image from jpsblog.net Twitter has begun acting on label and rights holder requests based on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to take down allegedly offending material. It's not the first report like this, but last week blogger JP got this notice from Twitter after posting about a recent leak of The Nationals new album complete with links and tweeted about it:

jp917, Apr 22 03:10 pm (PDT):
Hello,
The following material has been removed from your account in response to a DMCA take-down notice:
Tweet: http://twitter.com/jp917/statuses/12499491144 – New Post: Leaked: The National – High Violet http://jpsblog.net/2010/04/20/leaked-the-national-high-violet/  

Asked to respond, Twitter said in statement:

“In this situation, we responded to a request to remove a Tweet containing a link to download content from an unreleased album. After reexamining our decision, we believe this was the correct first step. If the affected user believes we have made a mistake or that the notice is in error, the appropriate thing for the user to do is file a counter-claim.” (via Mashable)
