“That System Works”

I was doing some law research and came across this interesting quote by Napster’s attorney, David Boies:

The DMCA also set up a notification procedure, through which service providers like Napster can say, “Look, if you believe somebody is infringing, you bring us a notice. We will then shut them down unless they give a counternotice. If they give a counternotice, it’s up to the court to decide.” And that system has worked with Napster. Hundreds of thousands of users have been terminated because of those notices. Congress set up a system. That system works. 

Depends what your definition of “works” is, I guess.
