Submission + - Nielsen Sends Wikipedia DMCA Takedown (wikipedia.org)

RockMFR writes: A DMCA takedown notice sent by Nielsen Media Research to the Wikimedia Foundation has resulted in the deletion of over 300 pages on the English Wikipedia. The pages were "templates" and categories that listed television stations within various geographical markets in the United States. Discussion of the deletions has focused on whether this type of information can actually be copyrighted, though the content of the takedown notice have not been made public.
This discussion was created for logged-in users only, but now has been archived. No new comments can be posted.
