Hurt Locker' Studio Now Suing Nearly 50K Pirates -(bit torrent users)
Lawyers representing Voltage Pictures, the independent production company behind the Oscar-winning war movie The Hurt Locker, has announced via legal findings (Scribd) that they plan to go after 24,583 individuals who allegedly shared the movie via BitTorrent. The copyright complaint originally sought after 5,000 "John Doe" defendants back in May 2010 when it was filed with the federal court in Washington D.C.

sounds like it.

interesting that they tend to go after big budget recent movies rather than old ones from the 80s or 90s.

how many bit torrent users here??

comeon tell the truth, ive never been able to go thru a proxy via a proxy, let along a proxy via a proxy via a proxy.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1348897


I pirate everything recent and have never even once in 8 years had an email from my ISP about it.
Others I know have had them and just replied with oh well they must have made a mistake.
And never heard about it again.
These greedy fucks can go fuck themselves ill die before I stop watching what I want when I fucking want.

The company is reportedly playing hard ball with the plaintiffs, refusing to fork over personal information solely based on an IP address.


Clearly a number on the internet which anyone else could spoof is NOT enough evidence for a subpoena for peoples private information.
Especially in regards to a non criminal civil suit.

Politely send one back explaining how downloading a movie from another person is no different than going to there house and watching it or copying it or borrowing it.
Which is not illegal.
And that it is not the full high quality version of the movie and that you have not taken the right away from the copyright holder to sell it.
And have taken no physical thing off them as if you hadn't have got it off your friend you wouldn't have bought it anyway.
