Lawsuit Takes Aim at People Swapping Movies Online

The U.S. Copyright Group has filed a lawsuit against 20,000 people for sharing movies over the internet. All 20k people shared the movie Far Cry…you'd think watching that would be punishment enough but it isn’t…the USCG is going after another 30,000 people next.

For its first attempt to win financial compensation from file sharers, the USCG is working with small, independent film producers to sue individuals over the illegal downloading of five movies: "Steam Experiment," "Far Cry," "Uncross the Stars," "Gray Man," and "Call of the Wild 3D." A second case against a further 30,000 file sharers will include another five films whose titles have not been disclosed, according to THR.
