Our statement on the youtube-dl DMCA Takedown is online:
@codeberg "However, if we for example host a legitimate open source tool and we would receive a similar notice, then we most likely would have to disable the repository until the matter is resolved by court ruling...." It is codeberg who would receive such notice not the authors of the tool itself. Can you comment.
The novel aspect of the youtube-dl case is that interpretation of legality is countering prior assumptions--many Codeberg users would not assume such a project illegal in EU, and even professional experts are divided. We provide some sources in the blog post.
