Automattic wins $25,000 in case against DMCA takedown abuser

Automattic has been awarded just over $25,000 in damages in a case against a DMCA takedown abuser, to cover legal fees and company costs from the case.

As the TorrentFreak article notes, while this is largely a symbolic win, it’s important because it’s “a clear signal to other copyright holders that false DMCA takedown requests are not always left unpunished.”
