    Not sure how much to believe all this, you don't sue a "leet" number of people.
    The OG that ran Bleach for near a decade is no more.

    Hard to believe

    - They supposdely do this based on IP. However IP actually tells little. It's like suing someone based on a blurry photography. It's possible for search for that person, but won't work for even a small group of people.

    - It's hard to believe you can break the privacy and track a hundred people who downloaded a certain torrent. Things aren't that easy.

    - Overall, it doesn't make sense in terms of laws. Downloading a file isn't something that instantaneously turn in arrest/reparation.

    - How would it cost? You can't sue 1,000 of people at the same time, it's something that is analyzed case by case. That would cost a million of bucks, and it's unlikely they will get reparation for a "episode watched", or at the best it will be an average of 1¢ per person...

    - Bitorrent works different for different users. Some have uploads turned off. Besides, someone might download just a part, or download it all and not watch, downloading it as a fake file, whatever...


    I am a bad mood today, perhaps I will sue the last 1,000 people who read this thread...

    Of course this can be just another trial that makes no sense

    A judge here in Brazil prohibited GTA IV EFLC from being sold in the entire world.
