Hollywood Studios Send DMCA Takedowns Over Kim Dotcom's Mega Service
from the they-really-don't-like-that-guy dept
Normally, we give the studios the benefit of the doubt, and we chalk these sorts of things up to over aggressive automated takedowns , but at this point you have to wonder if the studios aren't just attacking Mega because they can. They absolutely hate Dotcom with a passion well beyond any reason, and now that Google has told them it will hurt the search rankings of sites that receive too many DMCA notices, they have a direct incentive to look to weaken Mega, as it's something they're fearful of, in part because they don't understand it. Once again, though, we see that the major Hollywood studios completely abusing the DMCA takedown process. Is it any wonder they're so adamant that they shouldn't get in any trouble for filing bogus DMCA takedown notices?
