Millionaire Vowes To Fight MPAA Racketeering

Posted in Crime, Movie at 6:56 am by snag

“Shawn Hogan received an unsettling call: A lawyer representing Universal Pictures and the Motion Picture Association of America informed the 30-year-old software developer that they were suing him for downloading Meet the Fockers over BitTorrent. Hogan was baffled. Not only does he deny the accusation, he says he already owned the film on DVD. The attorney said they would settle for $2,500. Hogan declined.”

I hope he countersues for lawyer fees.
