The Ecuadoran government is using U.S. law to silence its critics. The government is filing complaints under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, claiming copyright violations against videos and posts critical of the government. Websites hosting the material automatically take it down. Those who posted the material are generally able to get it reinstated, but that takes time and effort.
