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 !
