Who's On First, What's On Second And I Don't Know Is On Third

"Stealing movies leaves a trail. The only way not to get caught is to stop."

That's the message that the Motion Picture Association of America want people who download movies to get. Apparently, the MPAA got a Court order to take over LokiTorrent.com. When it did, it posted this message: "You can click, but you can't hide."

That message may be more literal than downloaders think. As part of the MPAA's case against LokiTorrent, the file server owner was ordered by the Court to give up his computer server logs and data.

Some 750,000 users registered on LokiTorrent. That user data is now in the hands of the movie industry.

Late last week, the MPAA announced that it initiated round two of litigation against several other sites, including host indexes for BitTorrent, eDonkey and DirectConnect and some individual computer users.

According to the MPAA, if you want to download movies, you can go to MovieLink, CinemaNow or MovieBeam.

It's easier to just turn on the radio. We already know the players.
