Basically, media-defenders started a site miivi.org to trap P2P users and send legal notices to your ISP. 700mb of emails get leaked and now they have shut down. I suggest reading everything. Theres even a leaked phone call with the Attorney general.
Media-defenders then sent letters to various torrent sites to prevent the emails from being passed...check out meganova.com's response to the legal notice:
Dearest little asstunnels,
Let me start of by thanking you for your pitiful attempt to have your emails removed from the entire internet (the thing that says www.). In no way we feel obligated to fulfill your request, as a matter of fact any organization that tries to harm this site and the bittorrent user in general can expect nothing more from us but a big **** you!
In case you haven't noticed, this site is located in Europe (I hope you can point it out on a map) where your stupid copyright claims have no base. But fair is fair you guys did suffer over the past week so here's bit of advice to you guys:
* **** you!
* **** you again!
* **** you again and again and again!
* **** you again and again and again && again!
There is no way you can stop this, your emails have been published on more then a centillion websites. And if there is anyone who is going to start a lawsuit it will be us suing you for attempts to sabotage the integrity of this site and many others.
The e-mails, which were obtained by a group that calls itself MediaDefender-Defenders, reveal that the company attempted to deceive the public after the disclosure of its affiliation with the MiiVi site and was providing information about file-sharing network users to the New York State Attorney General's office.
MediaDefender is now in damage control mode and hopes to slow the spread of the e-mails by intimidating P2P site operators. MediaDefender is represented by Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton (SMR&H), which is recognized one of the top law firms in the United States. The P2P sites are unimpressed with the empty threats.
ok? I don't care about RIAA or MPAA, but why do you feel like you have the right to steal property. I mean if you are communist or whatever I guess I might understand but it seems like everyone makes an exception on this issue.
