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.

Ever hear of treaties such as WIPO or the Berne Convention? I didn't think so. It doesn't matter what those nations think of the MPAA, they're still bound by international copyright law.

Not if they didn't sign those things! Saudi Arabia never signed, Iraq never signed, Syria never signed, the list goes on and on and on.

You can't enforce something on a country that that country didn't agree to.
