Last week, I wrote about a lawsuit filed by the United States Copyright Group (USCG) on behalf of Nu Image regarding the supposed illegal downloading of Nu Image’s The Expendables movie.

This week, The Expendables were beat out by Hurt Locker, and it had nothing to do with box office receipts.
Voltage Pictures (the makers of Hurt Locker), is suing 24,583 people for file-sharing copyright infringement regarding its movie. I will do the math for you; that is 1,261 more defendants than named in The Expendables lawsuit. Read more “Makers of Hurt Locker Suing Over 24,000 Illegal Downloaders”
