Someone doesn’t know how fair use works…

Boingboing.net has been served a DMCA takedown notice for what is (to me) clearly an instance of fair use for criticism.

What makes this all the better is that the picture in question is a horrid abomination.  Behold!

Just because you’re a big company doesn’t mean you can intimidate journalists into not criticizing your work, especially when it’s horrendously bad like the picture in question.  I wonder, did they hire Rob Liefeld as their Photoshopper?
