Stack Exchange has apparently received a DMCA takedown notice from CipherCloud, requiring Stack Exchange to delete a post with analysis of CipherCloud's product.
I'd like to ask that Stack Exchange corporate post a scanned image of the takedown request publicly on this thread.
Also, I would like to ask Stack Exchange to post the takedown request to EFF's Chilling Effects Clearinghouse database. Background: The Chilling Effects Clearinghouse allows companies to report notices to them, and they make the notices publicly available.
I believe this issue of great interest to our community, and possibly to others as well. Therefore, I think it would do a service to all to publish exactly what allegations CipherCloud made, so that others can form their own opinion about how this should affect our view of CipherCloud as a good citizen or bad citizen of the broader computer security community. It would also help us understand better how this kind of situation might affect the Crypto.SE community in the future.
(On a personal note: my first reaction is to find it absolutely abominable that a CipherCloud has used the DMCA process to, apparently, silence cryptanalysis of their product. But I'd like to understand their perspective before I form a final judgement, and so I'd like to see what they said in their DMCA takedown request, in their own words.)
