Legal "Google has filed a brief at a federal court in Florida defending the file-hosting site Hotfile in its case against the MPAA. The search giant accuses the movie companies of misleading the court and argues that Hotfile is protected under the DMCA's safe harbor. Indirectly, Google is also refuting claims being made by the US government in the criminal case against Megaupload." Obviously, Google isn't really defending Hotfile or MegaUpload here - they're defending themselves by proxy.

By their calculations, probably somewhere around 8 or 9 billion jobs:
