FREE SOFTWARE --
As a follow-up to the story about a Qualcomm DMCA notice taking down 100+ repositories of open-source code on GitHub, Qualcomm has changed course.

Qualcomm has reversed its take-down notice and has allowed the 100+ Git repositories to re-appear. Qualcomm came under pressure and likely took a look at the reported files to realize they weren't confidential, with some of the take-down requests being over Android kernel source files and code from CyanogenMod, Sony Xperia, and even their own QCA repository.

The original Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice can still be found on GitHub while the linked repositories have all re-appeared publicly.
