I don't know if you want to believe it, but Google's general counsel has claimed on his blog that there is evidence that the subpoena from AG Hood was written by the MPAA's legal firm. Reference:

Assuming that is to be believed, I think it makes sense that Google took the action that it did.

That being said, I think that silencing Hood on all matters Google is going a little overboard.
