BitTorrent Admins Charged in Billion Dollar Piracy Case

Holy cow, these two better hope they don't have to pay $1.25B in restitution! eek!

After anti-piracy investigators somehow managed to obtain a full copy of their site logs several years ago, a married couple behind the now defunct Interfilm BitTorrent tracker have finally been charged for their role in running the site. The Moscow pair face claims they cost movie companies a staggering $1.25 billion. Fines and possible jail sentences of up to six years await them.
