Linking to movies leads to $4 million in fines

Arstechnica reports: "Hollywood has been granted another victory in its war against piracy, this time at the expense of two linking sites that the Motion Picture Association of America believes profited from enabling copyright infringement. Both ShowStash.net and Cinematube.net have been hit with multimillion dollar judgments recently for copyright infringement of various movies and TV shows. (Industry, PC)

Land of lawsuits, my family has had it's share of them.

I salute the MPAA with two middle fingers and I'll twirl on it.

I wonder what the MPAA does with lawsuit money, probably the same as our congressmen.

Salary raises
Expensive cars
Breast implants
Sending their idiotic kids to the finest universities
Hiring more secretaries (if you know what I mean ;D)

Anyone want to add to the list?
