Thinking on this, it could be a sign of how google changes can even affect hosting companies. Imagine the rev $$ loss many companies are facing now due to all the DCMA complaints being filed since Panda was unleashed (because it appears scrapers are taking down legitimate sites).
Reading this, I get the impression that HostGator is making the choice to make it difficult for legal content owners to file complaints so they can stick with clients who are scraping rather than face a high loss of hosting clients. I'm interested in hearing what a lawyer has to say about this.
