Torrentspy fights back against the MPAA

By Justin Mann on March 28, 2006, 4:17 PM
Torrentspy is claiming that the MPAA's case against them should be dismissed, due to a lack of real evidence. Torrentspy is hugely popular, and if the MPAA has their way they won't be the first large torrent site to go the way of the Dodo, but Torrentspy claims they have co-operated with the MPAA and other agencies in the past when asked to remove links from their site. How this case turns out will probably be a deciding factor in future cases, of which there will probably be a lot. If you are interested in the claim itself and the motion, you can read full details about it all in this PDF.

I wonder when the MPAA will realize that the only reason that movies are pirated as much as they are is because the asking price is ridiculous, and it's easier to just download the damn movie from your computer chair...This war will never be won until the MPAA recognizes that most of the time people download movies because it's easier. If they provided a service where for only 5.99 or so you could download any movie to your harddrive, I bet they'd see piracy dry up by over 50% overnight.Look at the games industry, how many digitally distributed games are pirated in comparison to those that aren't... Look at galactic civilizations 2 for instance, no copy protection at all, and they were the best seller for quite some time.Sigh... Old people....
