Sue your customers, now with extra vitriol
John Borland reports for CNET that the MPAA is launching a new round of lawsuits against film-swappers. There's some fear that this is an offshoot of the shutdown of LokiTorrent, a major BitTorrent hub. During that fiasco, not only did the owners agree to pay US$1 million, they agreed to turn over their server logs.
Anyone who wonders why I don't run BitTorrent should read the linked story carefully. What those administrators were doing keeping such logs in the first place is anyone's guess.
