I created a wiki book on Libertarian Socialiam using Wikipedia's book creator and deposited on the Internet Archive.

This morning I woke up to a notice that it's been taken down due to a DMCA takedown copyright notice from Springer Nature

@dajbelshaw apparently they think it's this:

springer.com/gp/book/978023028

I suspect they just have a bot that crawls through wikibooks looking for titles that also exist in their library.

Copyright enforcement practices suck almost as much as copyright

@Canvasian Yeah, thanks for looking. If I was actually using it for anything, I'd actually care. As it is, I just stuck it up there in case anyone else found the wikibook useful.
