Movie Studios Win Ruling Against isoHunt
isoHunt is a torrent website that is in the top 200 most visited websites in the world (Alexa.com). In September 2006 after there was a raid at The Pirate Bay, movie studios decided to go after isoHunt. Last week a federal court in California ruled against isoHunt saying that the website is guilty of inducing copyright infringement.
There wasn’t a full ruling on this case, only a summary grant seeing as how this case was similar to Napster (in their early days) and Grokster. The movie studios that filed a complaint against isoHunt include Disney, Tristar, 20th Century Fox, Columbia, Universal, and Warner Bros. Gary Fung is the man behind isoHunt.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry. You can follow me at @amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
