When a DMCA is not a DMCA

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has accused Warner Brothers Entertainment of using a flawed computer program to send out takedown notices without proper oversight.

The claims were made in an amicus curiae (friend of the court) filing in the ongoing legal battles between the entertainment industry and Hotfile, which distributes content that is often illegally shared. In 2011, the MPAA sued Hotfile and its owner Anton Titov, who promptly countersued Warner for requesting media takedowns of content to which it did not own the rights, under the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

If you get one from Warner, you might want to ask a few questions.

the moral is, if you get a DMCA from anyone you should investigate it yourself and assess if it's valid. Warner isn't the only company that does this kind of thing.
