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.

I doubt that even the common man knows about Mega Hot Uploaded File or indeed cares.

Of course Google has their on-line disk, while this service, just like Dropbox or Microsoft's Skydrive, isn't geared towards 'illegal' file sharing like Hot Uploaded Mega File was it could be a next step by the media industry.
