+ - TorrentSpy Ordered By Judge to Become MPAA Spy

Submitted by PC Guy
PC Guy (666) writes "TorrentSpy, one of the world's largest BitTorrent sites, has been ordered by a federal judge to monitor its users. They are asked to keep detailed logs of their activities which must then be handed over to the MPAA.

Ira Rothken, TorrentSpy's attorney responded to the news by stating:

"It is likely that TorrentSpy would turn off access to the U.S. before tracking its users. If this order were allowed to stand, it would mean that Web sites can be required by discovery judges to track what their users do even if their privacy policy says otherwise."
"

Vital papers will demonstrate their vitality by spontaneously moving from where you left them to where you can't find them.
