garg0yle writes to tell us that Cryptome appears to have stepped in it again with a recent leaked document concerning Microsoft’s “Global Criminal Compliance Handbook.” “Microsoft has demanded that Cryptome take down the guide — on the grounds that it constitutes a ‘copyrighted [work] published by Microsoft.’ Yesterday, at 5pm, Cryptome editor John Young received a notice from his site’s host, Network Solutions, bearing a stiff ultimatum: citing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Network Solutions told him that unless he takes the ‘copyrighted material’ down, they will ‘disable [his] website’ on Thursday, February 25, 2010. So far, Young refuses to budge.” In a gesture of goodwill Wikileaks has offered to host Cryptome via their twitter feed.
