The Opening Line Says It All

TorrentSpy loses Calif. copyright lawsuit

TorrentSpy may be its own worst enemy.

A federal judge has ruled against the BitTorrent indexing service saying that its hiding and destruction of evidence made a fair trial impossible.

A Los Angeles court agreed with the Motion Picture Association of Americas attorneys that the extraordinarily harsh sanction of terminating the case was necessary because TorrentSpy operators actions impacted the ability for the movie studios to prove its case.

“The court finds that plaintiffs have suffered prejudice, to the extent that a rightful decision is not possible,” the ruling said.
