Steve Krivit filed a DMCA takedown notice against content here, see Critique of articles – copyright issues. In my training — which he knows about — it is said that if you are not being shot at, you are not doing anything worth wasting ammunition on. So thanks, Steve, for the compliment. It has led me to discover hypothes.is, so I may now write a much more extensive critique of the entire NET site, and the nature of hypothes.is display is such that I will probably write briefer and more pointed critique.

It’s all good.

Hypothes.is facilitates annotating web pages. It does not store the page content locally, but, for users who choose to access a site through the echo at hypothes.is, annotations may be seen. Anyone may annotate with a free hypothes.is account, and one may reply to annotations. One of the design intentions of hypothes.is was to allow “fact checking” of political claims, where the copyright owner would be hostile to quotation and use DMCA takedown to attempt to prevent it. Because of how hypothes.is operates, a DMCA takedown would not be possible, for only the critique is hosted on hypothes.is (published critique is Creative Commons licensed for reproduction with attribution), as far as I understand so far.
