Submission + - HD-DVD processing key and massive censorship

Rudd-O writes: "After successful discovery of the HD-DVD processing key, massive unprecedented amounts of censorship, in the form of DMCA takedown notices (by the MPAA), have begun to circulate around the Internet. For example, Spooky Action at a Distance was killed. More disturbingly, my story got Dugg twice, with the second wave hitting 15.500 votes, and today I found out it had simply disappeared from Digg. How long until the long arm of the MPAA gets to my own site (run in Ecuador) and the rest of them holding the processing key? How long will we let rampant censorhip go, in the name of economic interest?"
