Github complies with Microsoft DMCA takedown of Halo Online mod repo

28 06 2015

Halo Online, the series’ new free-to-play spin-off, is coming exclusively to Russian PCs in the coming weeks, and Microsoft wants to keep it from leaking outside that country. However, after files from the game leaked and were re-purposed by modders, Microsoft responded by targeting Github with a Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown notice of a modding team’s Halo Online game launcher.

“This repository is currently disabled due to a DMCA takedown notice,” the link to the repo in Github currently says. “We have disabled public access to the repository. The notice has been publicly posted. If you are the repository owner, and you believe that your repository was disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification, you have the right to file a counter notice and have the repository reinstated.”

The DMCA requires ISPs to remove infringing content or face legal liability for infringement.
