It looks like movie studios are bringing down the heat on file-sharing services all over the internet, one at a time. The latest to feel the crosshairs on its back is popular file-sharing service, Hotfile. The site that is alleged to reward the sharing of copyrighted material via its affiliate system has been sued by the combination of Disney, Fox, Universal, Columbia and Warner Bros. Hotfile does have an Intellectual Property disclaimer on their website that is supposedly fully compliant with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, but it looks like that isn’t going to save its skin. Chances are, we’ll be seeing Hotfile close down pretty soon, but another file-sharing service will probably rise up to take its place and the whole process will repeat itself again. What do you think movie studios can do to stop piracy?
