GitHub has published
its 2015 transparency report. “This 2015 report details the types of
requests we receive for user accounts, user content, information about our
users, and other such information, and how we process those
requests. Transparency and trust are essential to GitHub and to the open
source community, and giving you access to information about these requests
can protect you, protect us, and help you feel safe as you work on
GitHub.
” The report notes that a significant number of requests for
removal of content are notices submitted under the Digital Millennium
Copyright Act, or the DMCA.
