You can run but you can't hide from the MPAA

The Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA) has expanded its crackdown on online movie piracy by filing seven new lawsuits against online sites. Websites targeted include Isohunt.com, BTHub.com, TorrentBox.com, TorrentSpy.com, NiteShadow.com, Ed2k-it.com, NZB-Zone.com, BinNews.com and DVDRs.net.

“Website operators who abuse technology to facilitate infringements of copyrighted works by millions of people are not anonymous – they can and will be stopped. Disabling these powerful networks of illegal file distribution is a significant step in stemming the tide of piracy on the Internet,” said John G. Malcolm, Executive Vice President and Director of Worldwide Anti-Piracy Operations for the MPAA.

FWIW, to make a legal BU of something you might own that runs into a cyclical redundancy error you might want to search the terms 'download' and 'dvd decrypter'. Then, using the decrypted files make an ISO with shrink and then BU the ISO.

As for the article, no shit they're going to sue these people, and everyone associated with them that they can get a piece of. The people who host the media, post it, transfer it, whatever, all knew (or should have known) that it would just be a matter of time. And the more you do it, the more they want to make an example of you and jack the fine up. Right or wrong, it's common sense.
