David Kravets reports from the delicious-irony dept.:

What do you do if you’re a revenge porn site operator and the Federal Trade Commission has barred you from publishing nude images of people without their consent?

You demand that Google remove from its search engine links to news accounts about the FTC’s action and other related stories, citing “unauthorized use of photos of me and other related information.”

Craig Brittain—the former operator of revenge porn site IsAnybodyDown.com—is invoking the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in a bid to remove 23 links in all—an irony-filled DMCA takedown request that Google is ignoring.

Should I feel slighted that PogoWasRight.org wasn’t included in the takedown request? This site had covered the FTC press release, but had included a quote from his response/statement that day. Did that make the difference, or did Craig Brittain just decide this humble blog wasn’t worthy of his takedown efforts?
