Hollywood Sues Computer Server Owners

Hollywood movie studios are suing owners of computer servers that facilitate movie downloading. “The defendants this time run servers that use BitTorrent, now the program of choice for online sharers of large files owing to its immunity to industry attempts to confound file-swappers with bogus decoy files. ‘Today’s actions are aimed at individuals who deliberately set up and operate computer servers and Web sites that, by design, allow people to infringe copyrighted motion pictures’.”
