  1. For too long artists have been deprived of an effective mechanism to have their work removed from infringing sites. This needs to end. Stop punishing people for trying to earn a living from their work and eliminate this unfair loophole for profiteers.

  2. Very good overview.
    Just to let you know. Less than 10% of file hosting services are registered at the US Copyright Office. We checked 600 file hosters and 40 were registered.
    Most of them with either fake addresses or straw men as designated agent.
    So this is a big fake. Less than 10 have reasonable data in the registration.

    All services tried to get protected by DMCA safe harbor. They all have big sections on their websites with tons of text. But it is all fake.
    An absurd situation.
