Peanutweeter, the extremely funny and clever best-of-Twitter project
that inserted odd tweets into oddly matching Peanuts panels, has been taken down from Tumblr following a DMCA copyright complaint from the Iconix Brand Group
, who bought the Peanuts copyrights.
The site's creator, T. Jason Agnello, said he doesn't plan to fight the takedown.
"I believe I put a good-faith effort into specifying that this was a fair use parody," Agnello said Friday in an e-mail to Wired.com. "However, I don't have the legal might to argue it. Nor do I wish for the stress in doing so."
