    A website which facilitated the online exchange of films, music and TV programmes without permission has lost a US copyright case. TorrentSpy was taken to court by the Motion Picture Association of America.
    A judge made a default ruling in favour of the MPAA after she said the site's operators had tampered with evidence.
    The site had ignored an order to retain server logs and the unique online addresses of computers which traded files using the BitTorrent program.
