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.
