An interesting file share move by Friendfeed?

Friendfeed added yet another feature to its short social messaging service that you won’t find on Twitter: the ability to share MP3s and other files directly within your feed.

From Wired.
Isn't this something of a political move? Bret Taylor, co-founder of Friendfeed told Wired the plan : to respond to infringement complaints as is required by the DMCA (by removing infringing content from the site after being notified by a content owner) and by terminating repeat infringers’ accounts. It’s unclear how copyright holders would even know anything’s being infringed, given Friendfeed’s privacy options.
