Chris Mackney’s wife tried to keep his murder by suicide “Hush-Hush”

“..the idea that a woman would be abusing copyright law to stifle her ex-husband’s suicide note, seems like a clear case of censorship-via-copyright. The various sites reporting on this would appear to have a very strong fair use claim as well — and at least a few (including the one linked above) are refusing to take down the letter. Furthermore, as this is getting more attention, more people appear to be posting variations on the letter getting it much more attention. In fact, a bunch are now reading the letter aloud on YouTube (making it even more transformative in any fair use analysis).”
