MPAA / RIAA Want U.S. to Help Quash The Pirate Bay

The MPAA and RIAA want our government to help take down The Pirate Bay, cyber lockers, link sites and just about anything associated with piracy. Wait...who is going to foot the bill for all this stuff?

The MPAA and RIAA have submitted their policy recommendations to Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel. In a joint submission the groups explain that despite the broad availability of legal content, online piracy is still rampant. The groups say that services including The Pirate Bay, Rapidgator, Turbobit, DepositFiles and PutLocker are piracy havens, and they urge the U.S. Government to help them quash these sites.
