Copyright Action website suffers apparent denial-of-service attack

The Copyright Action website appears to be suffering a denial-of-service attack. The site was knocked offline last night because it had breached its bandwidth limit. Investigation has revealed a high level of suspicious web traffic, matching the typical pattern of that caused by an automated attack from a botnet.

What a coincidence that this should happen just when the site’s information is of most use to Clause 43’s opposition, and most damaging to the Clause’s supporters. We wonder what could have caused it.
