Submission + - Nielsen Sends Wikipedia DMCA Takedown (

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.
