MPAA’s Court Ordered Piracy Filter Censors Many Legitimate Files | TorrentFreak

MPAA’s Court Ordered Piracy Filter Censors Many Legitimate Files | TorrentFreak | Wired State -- the new networked powers-that-be | Scoop.it
Following a US court decision BitTorrent search engine isoHunt was ordered to implement a site-wide keyword filter provided by the MPAA.
CatherineFitzpatrick's insight:

1) Why do they have to rely on torrent sites to distribute their files? don't they have their own websites?

2) Why don't they re-name their content when this happens?

3) I don't believe for a minute that "thousands" are "censored" when we've got only one artist who gives his music away bitching about this -- and he probably gives it away as part of an ideological program.

 

Glad the court upheld this filter, it's a good thing for the movie industry which needs to get paid.
