The spat between Zen Magnets and Buckyballs has gotten weird - Buckyballs, makers of a crappy product, have decided to abuse the DMCA to try to remove Zen's video response (now mirrored over here.

Apparently the whole thing started when Zen posted a couple of eBay auctions with a set of Zen magnets and a set of Buckyballs, asking whoever bought them to decide which was better. Buckyballs decided to get the eBay auctions taken down (how, I'm not sure, since right of first sale should mean Zen is just fine going and buying some Buckyballs from a store and then reselling them).
