New MPAA lawsuits against BitTorrent, eDonkey expected


The MPAA is expected to announce new legal actions this week against operators of indexing servers for two major peer-to-peer filesharing networks. In the US, action is expected to be filed against operators of BitTorrent tracker servers; in Europe, against parties responsible for the hosting of eDonkey servers. The MPAA has not confirmed or denied that these actions are forthcoming, but have announced that a press conference will be held Tuesday to launch a “significant expansion of the global fight against movie piracy.”

Be interesting to see what servers are nailed tomorrow in the lawsuits. I thought most of the big BitTorrent servers (, etc.) were located overseas.
