DMCA / Takedown Requests

I probably should have done this sooner but seeing as we get so few of these, it really never crossed my mind until today. I'm going to use this thread to document content removed at the request of a copyright holder. If I can go back and find older requests (I remember at least one recent one), I may add them but for the time being, plan on the official record starting now. As this thread will be purely informational, I'm going to lock it so updates don't get lost in a discussion about the merits of the DMCA.

To kick things off, we got a formal DMCA takedown request from Outfit7 Limited regarding their Talking Tom games. As such, the following games and all of their associated content have been removed from the network:

Mobile - My Talking Tom (tMR, tTR, and tSoR)
Mobile - Talking Tom Bubble Shooter (tMR)
Mobile - Talking Tom Jetski (tMR)

No further submissions to these games or any other game published by Outfit7 Limited will be accepted anywhere on the network.
The developer of Assault Android Cactus (PC / Computer) has asked us to remove the game from the site.
This is old, but McLeod Gaming does not want resources from Super Smash Flash 2 (PC / Computer) up on the site, according to a staff rejection PM to a submitter.

The trademark holder of Crossy Road (Mobile) has asked us to remove their game from the site. Sprites, models, and sounds have all been deleted as a result.
Not exactly a DMCA takedown, but the developers of Sonic Robo Blast 2 have stated in the past that they don't want their sprites hosted elsewhere.

Tsunami Bomb - The Simple Truth
We could run away
Leave behind anything paper
Not knowing where we're going to stay
When there's no Mondays

You're part of me, it's so easy to see the simple truth
When I'm in your arms, I feel safe from harm and sorrow too
You're part of me, it's so easy to see the simple truth
But most of all, nothing couldn't be solved when I'm with you
