Microsoft issues copyright takedown request over leaked Windows 11 build

Windows 11’s leaked build which emerged earlier this week is reportedly now the subject of a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown complaint, meaning the company wants Google to remove links to download the OS.

This was flagged up by Fossbytes (as spotted by Neowin) and it lends credibility to the authenticity of the Windows 11 leak, with Microsoft obviously keen to stop the spread of build 21996.1, and actually referring to it by the name ‘Windows 11’ in the highlighted request (as discovered via the Lumen project, which is an “independent research project studying cease and desist letters concerning online content”).
