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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
