    1717"May First/People Link has consistently challenged the use of DMCA to curtail web free speech," MF/PL Co-Director Alfredo Lopez said. "The law is outrageous because it literally imposes a penalty and a legal cure of a violation before it even tests for that violation. It's like executing someone for murder and then trying him for it and the victim ends up being the First Amendment which is fundamental to our collective survival in this country. We at MF/PL resist such assaults on freedom as vigorously as humanly possible."

    19 plentyfact added: "The behaviour of Newspaper Associated Ltd is just ridicoulous: Their legal threats against an anti-racist initiative, social centres and websites around half the globe exposes that their statement that Metro 'avowedly doesn't take a political stance' is a bad joke.  Not only do they show a complete lack of humor, they also appear to be determined to supress any criticism of their bad journalism whatsoever. How scared do you have be to hide such undertakings behind copyright claims?  But hey, we are talking about a company who publishes newspapers like the Daily Mail here. They don't even know what their own logo looks like."
