Giganews Data Foundry DMCA Takedown

I just received an email from the Internet Archive that the Data Foundry (which, according to Mr. Caputo, is interconnected to Giganews) has filed a copyright claim on the giganews-fbi file. Apparently the Giganews/Data Foundry folks are not very happy about being exposed. Since you've dealt with matters like this before, I seek your advice: should I appeal this copyright claim, or would it be a waste of time?

If you wish, I have attached the original ZIP file containing the two lists, in case you wish to re-upload it.


P.S. You may of course rename the file to giganews-fbi or giganews-fbi-01 or whatever.
