EFF and 10 Zen Monkeys vs. Michael Crook

crookdork

If you haven’t heard, an online prankster named Michael Crook is trying to abuse the DMCA to have unflattering pictures of himself taken off of web sites. 10 Zen Monkeys (RU Sirius’s new zine) and the EFF are fighting back. I’m suggesting everyone put a pic of Crook and a link to the 10ZM page to 1. Spread the pic far and wide in defiance of the DMCA and 2. Google bomb for the term “michael crook.”

Here’s a snip of code to add a pic and link to your own site. By standing up to intimidation and spreading the word about this case, you can help the fight for free speech online.
