TS has been in legal entanglements with the MPAA in the past and it doesn’t seem to be seizing any time soon. Earlier this year, the MPAA went after them because they allegedly provide illegal services to people in search of malicious torrents. TorrentSpy isn’t actually hosting any illegal files, as everyone knows. In response, access from US-based users to the site was blocked.
Yet, the MPAA will try to lift the aforementioned and force TorrentSpy to ‘spy’ (good choice of words, indeed) on its users. This, to me, is utter idiocracy and above all pretty hilarious. The crew at TS must think so too, I gather.
