The Retraction Watch blog made its name by shining light on scientific papers pulled for misrepresentation, misconduct, malpractice, or other chicanery. This week, however, the blog was notified that 10 of its posts were pulled by its web host because an Indian web site claimed copyright to them. Not true, said RW's Ivan Oransky. More from John Timmer and Tom Levenson, plus five similar episodes.
