hasanabbas1987 writes: "Talk about a big lawsuit The producers of the Oscar winning movie “The Hurt Locker” filed a lawsuit one year ago against 5,000 BitTorrent users who downloaded the movie illegally. Now Voltage Picture have increased the list of users to almost 25,000 users, making it the largest file-sharing lawsuit ever. Voltage have already made agreements with Verizon and Charter to identify individual users but failed to reach a contract with Comcast, who provide services to nearly 13,000 users included in the lawsuit list. Voltage seek to link the IP addresses with the user accounts used to download their movie and are looking for individual settlements ranging from $1,000 – $2000."
