Submission + - Citi uses DMCA to hide embarassing opinions

An anonymous reader writes: After posting online an investment analysis by banking giant Citi, several economists received DMCA take-down notices.

The document in question states that the U.S. Treasury's "stress tests" for banks during 2009 were actually "investor-friendly" and "bank-friendly." One threatened economist explains, Citi "seems to be a little embarrassed by having a public record of their early 2009 assessment of President Obama's banking plans. Back then, it seemed straightforwardly correct and politically uncontroversial to say that Obama's plans did not look like an attack on the financial sector. But, with the Republicans on the ascendancy lately, that kind of language might be sounding a bit off message about now."

As of today Cryptome.org is still hosting the document but also received a take-down notice.
