Seems that MPAA has been caught playing the part that everyone expects them to play.
In a new Hollywood drama, Torrentspy.com, a BitTorrent search engine, has accused the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) of hacking its servers. The accusations came in a new legal suit filed last week.
The suit (PDF), filed in California by Torrentspy.com, alleges that in 2005 the MPAA hired one of its former associates to steal information from the search engine company. The suit also claims that the MPAA paid a hacker $15,000 USD and that in reference to private information about TorrentSpy, a MPAA representative told the hacker, "We don't care how you get it." Torrentspy.com claims they have significant proof of wrongdoing; the MPAA says the claims are false.
The suit by Torrentspy.com and its parent company Valence Media appears to be partially in response to a previous lawsuit against the company, among others, and filed by the MPAA in February (PDF).
