The biggest P2P lawsuit ever just got cut down to size. Voltage Pictures, the people behind The Hurt Locker has voluntarily dismissed 90 per cent of the 24,583 filesharers it sued this year, in what could be a big victory for either side.
While Voltage Pictures has gotten most of the publicity surrounding the 5000 Hurt Locker lawsuits that were handed out last Friday, it’s far from the first P2P shake-down for the lawyers backing them. Extremely far, as it turns out.
Voltage Pictures, the production company behind The Hurt Locker, is gearing up to sue thousands – no, tens of thousands – of individuals who pirated the film online. Get ready for a huge escalation in the war on P2P.
