T. Greg Doucette is the North Carolina litigator who sleuthed out the incredible, bizarre details of the decision of the University of North Carolina's Republican-appointed governors to hand a group of white nationalists $2.5m to build a Confederacy museum.
Doucette visited the Orange County Courthouse and scanned 123 pages' worth of documents related to the "lawsuit" that resulted in the UNC payout, including a "victory statement" by Kevin Stone, who styles himself "commander" of the white nationalist group Sons of Confederate Veterans, who received the $2.5m windfall from the university.
But that victory statement is not available now, because Stone and the Sons of Confederate Veterans sent a DMCA notice to Dropbox, demanding that the document be removed on the grounds that it was a copyright violation, despite the document being part of a public court record.

Looks like the Grand Wizard of the Sons of Confederate Veterans *really* did not like me sharing his victory statement— T. Greg "#SilentSham" Doucette (@greg_doucette) December 2, 2019
They filed a DMCA complaint against me w/ Dropbox ?
Any copyright attorneys willing to share with me how I can resolve this? Maybe a lawsuit against the SCV? pic.twitter.com/dENqCmPZMW
