Usenet Crackdown

Apparantly the MPAA is now going after Usenet indexing websites according to this article on Betanews. Since the host no files whatsoever and only supply nzb files, I dont see how they have a case, but we’ll see how it turns out. Hope my favorite nzb site (who also invented the nzb format) www.newzbin.com wont disappear !

There are also two related articles on news.com: MPAA sues newsgroup search sites and Are Usenet fans vulnerable to copyright lawsuits ?

Basically I have too many interests. I like to read, play PC games (Kerbal Space Program and WoW are currently my favorites), watch movies, listen to music, and tweak PC's, browse the web and read news on Reddit and internet forums . I work for a small company as a software engineer.
