schwit1 writes with a piece in Torrent Freak about ongoing litigation
between Hotfile and a few movie studios. From the article: "Hotfile has sued Warner Bros. for fraud and abuse. Hotfile accuses the movie studio of systematically abusing its anti-piracy tool by taking down hundreds of titles they don't hold the copyrights to, including open source software. Among other things, Hotfile is looking for damages to compensate the company for the losses they suffered."
Near the end of the article it is mentioned that files taken down by the tool were replaced with links to legally
procure similar works from Warner Bros.
