Wow. Either Dropbox have some copyright issues with Dropship's code, or this is just a blatant misuse of DMCA to take down the content. Won't speculate, but I personally suspect the latter.

Wladimir did release the software under FOSS Expat ("MIT") license so he can't really take it back. It's now up to good will of others.

While I understand that this may put Dropbox in unfortunate situation, such methods to take down the problematic piece of software somehow feel wrong.
