Hotfile Ordered To Share User Data With The MPAA

The courts have ordered Hotfile to share its user data with the MPAA. Wait, isn't file sharing what got them in trouble in the first place? big grin

In their ongoing battle with the MPAA, the Florida-based file-hosting service Hotfile has suffered a major loss. A federal court has ordered Hotfile to disclose user data, the identities and revenues of their top affiliates, and financial information on the company itself. District Court Judge Adalberto Jordan argued that the MPAA needs this info to prove that Hotfile is promoting and profiting from copyright infringement.
