Default EFF To Courts: False Takedowns Stifle Free Speech

If the shoe was on the other foot in this case, do you think Hotfile would be able to get away with this lame "the computer did it" excuse? The EFF has filed a brief in the dispute between the cyberlocker Hotfile and Warner Bros, where the latter is accused of taking down content they don't hold the copyrights to. The EFF argues that Warner Bros. is stifling online speech by denying Hotfile users to access to legitimate content. The movie studio's claim that they are not responsible for mistakes made by a computer, but this is not a valid defense according to the group.
