US Lawsuit targets 23,000 Bitorrent users

Over 23,000 people are facing legal action after downloading the 2010 Sylvester Stallone movie ‘The Expendables'. This is the largest Bittorrent file sharing lawsuit in U.S. history.

Legal action in the U.S. is targeting more than 140,000 BitTorrent downloaders, many of which involve cases for porn and B-Rated movies. Film companies are paying individuals to watch Bittorrent sites and then to dip into active torrents to capture IP addresses of the peers who are downloading and uploading pieces of the files.

Wired, have a little tool available to see if you are one of the targets, you just click the button and it informs you if your IP is included in one of the cases. If you find that you are one of the targets then it might be useful to read this page.

KitGuru says: Bittorrent users need to be careful, especially with more eyes watching the IP addresses.
