And that's where their safe harbour evaporated.  Upon receiving notice a  
file is infinging, they know that *file* is illegal, and must now remove  
all the links to it, not just the one that was reported.  Mega is in a  
possition to know all the links, where as the copyright holder is not.

They thought they had a gaping loophole.  Well, the DOJ is about to teach  
them how wrong they are.
