Movie Studios Win Ruling Against isoHunt

Posted Dec 28, 2009

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.
