Submission + - TorrentSpy ordered to become MPAA Spy (

An anonymous reader writes: "TorrentSpy — one of the web's most famous BitTorrent sites was told by federal judge Jacqueline Chooljian in the Central District of California that despite the site's privacy policy which states they will never monitor their visitors without consent, they must start creating logs detailing their user's activities. Understandably, this is a worrying move by the court — even more so when one considers these logs must then be turned over to the MPAA."

Overflow on /dev/null, please empty the bit bucket.
