The Incident: Citigroup invoked the Digital Millenium Copright law to force Andy Cox's web hosting company to take down the sites, as well as all other sites hosted by the artist that were nothing to do with Citibank.

Results of Incident: The sites were shut down, but covered by The New York Times.
