I suspect most file sharing site don't have illegal content.  Most
would have some content that is there without the permission of the
copyright holder.  These are different things.

This case is not that there is copyrighted content there without
the permission of the copyright holder.  It's that they, allegedly,
failed to remove such content when explictly notified of it which
put them outside the safe harbour provision of DMCA.
