Cyberlocker Offers To Help Prosecute Its Own Customers

Hey, you know that cool cyberlocker you were paying to store all your copyright infringing content? You know what else you can buy there? All your personal data, including your IP address and banking information. eek!

A cyberlocker being sued for $34.8 million by an adult studio agreed in principle to a remarkable set of demands to settle a copyright infringement lawsuit. TorrentFreak has learned that file-hosting service Oron said it would turn over the IP addresses, banking details and email addresses of users alleged to have infringed copyright. The troubled cyberlocker then offered to assist plaintiff Liberty Media in civil prosecutions against its own customers.
