    2323 * [http://theyesmen.org/chamber US Chamber of Commerce]. In October 2009, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce sent Hurricane Electric a [https://support.mayfirst.org/raw-attachment/wiki/dmca/chamber-dmca-notice.pdf letter] complaining about a [http://www.chamber-of-congress.us website] spoofing the Chamber's obstructionism on climate change policies that was created by MF/PL member the Yes Men (read [http://theyesmen.org/chamber more about the spoof]). Hurricane Electric cut off our entire Internet connection for one and a half hours without notification. We fought back, regaining service and protecting the spoof site by moving it to another one of our colocation centers (hosting.com), which several days later forwarded another DMCA take notice to us. We then moved the site to a third center. Eventually, the Yes Men requested that the site be taken offline.

    27  * [http://www.fitwatch.org.uk/ fitwatch]. In a move even unusual for MFPL, fitwatch was accused by the London police of engaging in criminal behavior by helping activists who were part of the massive student demonstrations in the UK in the middle of November 2010. fitwatch, hosted with a company called Just Host, were surprised to find their site disappear.

Unlike all our other conflicts, this one is in fact not copyright related.

In November 2010, Apple Computer sent a [https://support.mayfirst.org/attachment/wiki/dmca/apple-dmca-notice.txt DMCA take down notice] to Hurricane Electric in response to a faux web site from the Yes Men advertising a new model of the iPhone that was developed without ravaging Democratic Republic of the Congo. After consultation, the Yes Men decided to voluntarily take the site down.
