According to a story on ZDNet, the MPAA has started mining logs from web sites known to host copyrighted movies (movies which happen to be downloaded using Bittorrent), and it plans to sue file swappers. Frankly, the quality of those movies sucks and is not analogous to the quality of MP3s. I wish the movie industry (or Apple) would hurry up and release a legitimate alternative a la iTunes. We obviously have the technology. I hate theatres, parking fees, and not being able to pause the movie when I have to pee, not to mention it's difficult to make it to the theatre with a newborn. I would gladly pay as much as I pay at the theatre (or even more) to download a newly released movie and watch it in the comfort of my own home.
