Dropbox has bandwidth limits on /Public URLs, particularly low for free accounts. This wholly circumvents that, and I suspect that's the real reason Arash asked for a takedown, not so much the loose association with piracy.

Dropbox could do the same for hashes. For example internet cannot download more than 400MB from a hash (4MB) per day.
