Transport Canada Issues DMCA Takedown Over On-the-Record Response

Transport Canada has reportedly issued a DMCA takedown notice to Scribd over an on-the-record response it provided to a journalist. The move is particularly odd (though not unprecedented, see here and here) given the document was issued to a journalist and the government changed its crown copyright licence last year to allow for private and non-commercial public use without the need for further permission.


  1. Very odd.

  2. dmca takedown
    DMCA intrudes a trademark and the rights owner wants to remove use of the infringing content through the Online instantly. It could change the need to computer file a legal action and search for expensive injunctive comfort.
