Wired News has a story about
an Internet service provider (and all of its clients) being forced offline because one client made fun of Dow Chemical. Dow’s attorneys contacted the ISP’s upstream provider, Verio, claiming that the site violated the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA). Verio couldn’t immediately find someone who could pull the offending site (it was “after business hours”), so they shut down the ISP’s entire network, affecting hundreds of other clients.
