Earlier today our forums were taken offline by Dreamhost because someone filed a DMCA complaint. The person filing the complaint claimed he owned the rights to a specific piece of content posted in our forums by a member of the community. The content is question was a list of leaked perks for the upcoming game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
At this time we do not believe the individual who filed the complain is part of Activision, nor do we think he owns the rights to the information. We plan to file a DMCA counter-notification against the party. We could easily remove the content and therefore enable the forums faster, however, since we are not infringing on any rights, we want to take a stand against these sorts of actions.
With that said the forum will remain down while we sort this out. The blog will continue posting news and original content as usual, but you will not be able to post comments on the articles until we resolve this matter.
Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience the downtime may have caused.
