Bloodbath at Hotfile.com

Perfect example of a multi-pronged anti-piracy approach.  Current litigation puts Hotfile into a position of cancelling accounts.  Then, removal notices force the expulsion of 1000s of accounts and untold petabytes of infringing files.  I’m glad I was focused on a hotfile aggregator this weekend.  Takedown Piracy DMCA’d at least 10k hotfile links this past weekend alone.
