So it begins. The internet witch hunt. I wonder how many of those sites or warehouses were ratted out by their competition?

The process to remove a site let alone 300 sites isn't as easy as hitting a button. But once the provider gets the notice they in turn will protect a customer to a certain point.
We deal with copyright issues in my industry and you have to pull a whole lot of paperwork out to get a site pulled let alone warned for copyright infringement. So I'm pretty sure these sites had been under investigation for a couple months.
