Deceased BitTorrent User Sued By Makers of The Hurt Locker

Antipiracy The makers of the movie The Hurt Locker have already sued 24,583 BitTorrent users for alleged copyright infringement. The makers started sending out subpoenas earlier this year, and it appears that one of the alleged infringers may have been deceased at the time of the offense.

More than 200,000 people have been accused of copyright infringement in the U.S. since last year, and with this many suits comes plenty of room for wrongful accusations (especially considering the fact that an IP-address is not a person).
