Scraping, good news! 

Great news folks: the database for that Italian paper has been "deaccessionized," or pulled down, due to "Legal issue or Data Usage Agreement Many entries in the datasets do not fulfill the law about personal data release since they allow identification of personal information."

This is a great first step. Personally I hope people keep pushing until the university retracts the paper and issues an apology, but this was probably the most egregious piece of this debacle.

Scraping, good news! 

@sandrockcstm I emailed the authors and got a response that they have contacted the university board to discuss what will happen with the paper itself. They pulled the dataset themselves.
