The August issue of Wired magazine brings us an article about a programmer turned millionaire who got sued by the Motion Picture Association of America - and vowed to figth the lawsuit in court. From the article:

"Last November, 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. (...) The attorney said they would settle for $2,500. Hogan declined."

It will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
