+ - MobiTV Threatens Legal Action Over Unsecured Files 1

Submitted by T-Bone-T
T-Bone-T writes: MobiTV is threatening HowardForums with removal from the Internet for providing links to its unsecured TV feeds. MobiTV claims that a HowardForums user has posted instructions on how to access a file containing the urls of their live feeds. MobiTV claims the feed urls were discovered through "hacking" or "debugging" but it turns out the file is accessible by anyone with access to the internet and the ability to type. The announcement on HowardForums can be found here,the PDF cease and desist letter from MobiTV here, and the post with the instructions here.
