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.
