A federal judge in Miami has dismissed direct copyright infringement charges against Hotfile, a popular online “locker” service that the major Hollywood studios allege is responsible for massive copyright infringement. But he allowed the case to proceed on charges that Hotfile has induced and profited from the infringing activities of its users.
