The story of the day, if not week, comes from CNet News: Torrentspy filed a lawsuit against the MPAA, alleging that the trade organization hired a hacker to illegally obtain evidence against the Torrent website. The lawsuit has some other pretty harsh allegations, that, if true, would show the war against P2P communities had reached TV-movie-esque qualities. From the filed papers:

"On information and belief, the MPAA did hire a private investigation firm which examined the trash of individuals associated with Torrentspy.com, at the MPAA's request."
