  • From Wikipedia: "The Streisand effect is a phenomenon on the Internet where an attempt to censor or remove a piece of information backfires, causing the information to be widely publicized." So named because Barbara Streisand once sued to have an aerial photo of her home removed from a study of beachfront erosion published on the 'net, citing privacy concerns--thus insuring that the photo was mirrored to multiple sites across the web.
