T. Greg Doucette is the North Carolina litigator who sleuthed out the incredible, bizarre details of the decision of the University of North Carolina’s Republican-appointed governors to hand a group of white nationalists $2.5m to build a Confederacy museum.
Doucette visited the Orange County Courthouse and scanned 123 pages’ worth of documents related to the “lawsuit” that resulted in the UNC payout, including a “victory statement” by Kevin Stone, who styles himself “commander” of the white nationalist group Sons of Confederate Veterans, who received the $2.5m windfall from the university.
But that victory statement is not available now, because Stone and the Sons of Confederate Veterans sent a DMCA notice to Dropbox, demanding that the document be removed on the grounds that it was a copyright violation, despite the document being part of a public court record.
(I am a visiting professor of practice at UNC’s School of Information and Library Science)
Looks like the Grand Wizard of the Sons of Confederate Veterans *really* did not like me sharing his victory statement
They filed a DMCA complaint against me w/ Dropbox 🤣
Any copyright attorneys willing to share with me how I can resolve this? Maybe a lawsuit against the SCV? pic.twitter.com/dENqCmPZMW

Propublica’s blockbuster report on the magistrate judges in South Carolina revealed a system of patronage, cronies, and gross miscarriages of justice, with judges appointed on the say-so of a single state senator, without regard to whether they had any legal experience (some judges took the bench after working construction, or as pharmacists, or as underwear […]
Last September, Jessica Lundquist passed through a body-scanner at Burbank airport and was told by a TSA screener that they wanted to conduct a “groin search” on her.
For some folks, writing notes by hand is just plain easier, but having to re-type them later can be a huge bore, not to mention time-sink. The guys from Rocketbook successfully merged the best parts of analog and digital note-taking with their Everlast notebook awhile back. And now, that tech just got a lot more […]
There are fast-paced card games, and some of them even require enough dexterity for a mini-workout (like Skip-Bo or Snap). But there’s nothing quite like the Mokuru® Card Game, which uses an already addictive fidget toy as the centerpiece for a cutthroat game of tabletop challenges. The game is named for the toy that gets […]
