Copyright takedown threat removes records of copyright takedown threats

Fox has forced ChillingEffects to takedown a copy of a takedown notice they sent to Google, which in turn ordered a takedown of feature-length Smurf movie Avatar. We know this, because ChillingEffects has put up the takedown notice.

Perhaps Fox is afraid its planned book collecting its takedown notices will have sales harmed if they're online. Maybe Murdoch is taking them behind a paywall.
