bs0d3 writes: The makers of The Hurt Locker have sued 24,583 alleged BitTorrent users, despite the fact that an ip address does not identify a person. When you sue so many at once there are bound to be some unfortunate collateral damage. Last week it was revealed that a blind man had been accused of downloading porn. This week a letter was returned to the U.S. District Court, indicating that the addressee is no longer alive and therefore unable to answer his legal allegations.
