Mega Removes Legal Files Citing Bogus DMCA Requests

It looks like Mega is having a bunch of issues with removing perfectly legal content. I think it is obvious Kim Dotcom's claim of only 50 take down requests a day is bogus and the new site clearly has issues.

To test how quickly a file is removed by Mega we decided to post some previously uploaded legal content to ourselves. Our uploads included a few Dan Bull songs, a clip from the Pirate Bay documentary TPB-AFK, a video explaining fair use and Kim Dotcom’s single Mr. President. Quite shockingly, the files were pulled down by Mega in a matter of minutes, claiming they had received copyright infringement notices for each of them.
