Warner Bros, Hotfile and EFF Fight Over Bogus Automated Takedown Requests (TorrentFreak)
The dispute between file-hosting service Hotfile and Warner Bros, where the latter is accused of taking down content they donít hold the copyrights to, is heating up. The court has accepted a brief filed by the EFF who argue that the automated takedown requests of the movie company represent a threat to free speech. Warner Bros quickly replied and disputes that computers are more accurate than humans, arguing that broad automated takedown systems are not incompatible with the DMCA law.
