This is pretty outrageous. The DMCA has a clearly defined process in place. If pirated materials are being made public on box.net, then all RIAA needs to do is file a takedown request with a link to the material or other uniquely identifying information.

What's really outrageous here is that it appears that the RIAA is expecting Box to scan their users' files looking for hashes of infringing materials. IOW, they seem to be requiring Box to violate contracts with their users and deeply undermine their business model - one which does not per-se thrive on infringing activities.

One has to assume this is in response to Amazon and Google... ie - "make sure you limit access to your users' files to just individual users... or else".
