MPAA to collect $110m from TorrentSpy

In what can only be termed a crushing defeat, leading torrent site TorrentSpy has been ordered to pay more than $110 million to the MPAA by a US District judge. It’s been a losing battle following TorrentSpy’s decision in March to make a stand by erasing a huge amount of MPAA-requested data they considered private.

This isn’t the time for sites like TorrentSpy to win cases like this — that’s still a ways off. In the meantime, though, their best course of action is to do what TorrentSpy and the Pirate Bay have been doing, even if that means you get hammered with an unfathomably huge fee. For those about to pay, we salute you.
