Submission + - Qualcomm Forces 100+ GitHub Accounts Down Over DMCA Notice (phoronix.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Qualcomm has forced GitHub to remove over 100 GitHub repositories over "unauthorized publication, disclosure, and copying of highly sensitive, confidential, trade secret, and copyright-protected documents." Among the repositories taken down were for CyanogenMod and Sony Xperia. The issue though is that these "highly sensitive" and "confidential" files are Linux kernel code and reference/sample code files that can be easily found elsewhere, including the Android kernel, but GitHub has complied with Qualcomm's DMCA request.
