This is much more than a catfight, and if you had a wife/daughter led astray by the influential Ginas of this world, as many of the skeptical ob's followers were at one time, you would understand why it's so important that Dr. Amy not be silenced because Gina can't refute Dr. Amy's rock-solid analysis of the evidence.
One need not have any stake in the underlying argument to understand it's important not to allow copyright to be abused to silence speech. Even if Gina is right and Dr. Amy is wrong, the DMCA abuse still needs to be stopped - the argument has nothing to do with that issue.
In India, Section 66A of the Information Technology Act makes it illegal to use a computer to publish "any information that is grossly offensive or has menacing character" or to publish false information.
Oh, Playboy and reality TV are going strong, but the celebs who appear on them are often perceived as lacking any other opportunities.
My point is that Kickstarter is Playboy and reality TV in your analogy, so while it may turn out that it attracts has-beens, your example doesn't say anything about how successful it will be, only about the sort of celebrity it may attract. I'm sure Kickstarter would be thrilled to be as well-known, financially successful, and long-lived as Playboy (though without other aspects of their reputation of course).
Congratulations for being the only one here (including Mr. Geigner) to surmise the real reason for this tragedy. Doctors and hospitals are required by law to report all gun-related (or suspected gun-related) injuries to the police.
There are at three other comments mentioning this issue.
"emulators created to play illegally copied Nintendo software"
