BitTorrent Operator Bites Back at MPAA
BitTorrent Operator Bites Back at MPAA: "Outside the United States, content companies have been largely ignored by BitTorrent sites. One recent cease-and-desist threat by Dreamworks lawyers from Keats, McFarland & Wilson serves as an example. Lawyers sent the Stockholm-based BitTorrent tracker site Pirate Bay an order telling them to stop because they were liable for infringing on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
One of the site's members, replied by e-mail in August:
'As you may or may not be aware, Sweden is not a state in the United States of America. Sweden is a country in northern Europe,' the e-mail read. 'Unless you figured it out by now, U.S. law does not apply here. For your information, no Swedish law is being violated.'"
