    all the links seem to be getting this message 'This file is either removed due to copyright claim or is deleted by the uploader.'

    Does anyone know what's going on?

    Thank You

    I think they're being sued and so they're doing mass deletions to try and make themselves look better before the final verdict.

    There are two threads running about this problem over in the

    Filehost News and Discussion section

    Hotfile goes to war against copyright infringers

    and

    Will the uploaders of Bolt.cd still upload to hotfile?

    I think that mainly they are deleting the files which have the actual name of the music album or Movie in the file title.
    Have tried this afternoon to download a music file which had the name of the album in the file name and it was refused saying infringement of copyright etc, but shortly afterwards I download a movie file which had just a jumbled up set of letters as the file name and it was downloaded with no problem.
    I remember from early on in my uploading journey that to put the actual name in a file meant it would be taken off very early. For a long time now I have only used jumbled up sets of letters as file name and never had a file removed.
    A Lesson to be learned perhaps??? Regards to all.. Buttbri.

    Hotfile is being Gay now they are deleting the accounts unnecessary I already lost about 5 accounts and 30$ in them I don't know if it's the right place or not but bolt.org should introduce a new file host since Hotfile is removing the links as soon as we are uploading them. Please consider this request as us an uploaders we are coming across too much problem with this on going hotfile Copyright issues.

    From all this ongoing HF palaver youd think Hans Blix himself was going to HF HQ to check for WMDs or something...

    I mean as if deleting accs & content is gonna save their bacon now. The media mafia have already got a case on the table FFS.

    Hans Blix was eaten by sharks.

    No new filehosts are going to be introduced. Wait and see what happens, the storm isn't over by far.
