Hotfile, a leading file hosting site has been banned by United State federal court. Website has been charged for violation of Copyright Law. Before this another file hosting site megaupload.com was banned by federal government for the same reason. Hotfile has been ordered to pay $80m to movie studios, and shut down unless it starts using filtering technology to prevent copyright infringement of their works. The settlement came just before a court case triggered by a lawsuit against the online storage service, led by industry body the MPAA - its second such victory in a matter of months, following the shutdown of BitTorrent search engine IsoHunt in October. The studios had claimed that more than 90% of Hotfile's daily downloads were of copyrighted content, although the company had argued that it was merely an online storage service that was not responsible for its users' behavior.
