The producers behind the Oscar-winning (including Best Picture) film, The Hurt Locker, have filed a suit against 5,000 BitTorrent users for illegally downloading their movie, reports perezhilton.com.
The producers started the crusade a few months ago, but it has now become official. All 5,000 users will be handed subpoenas for violating copyright laws. Voltage Pictures is seeking $1,500 settlement from each person. They also warn people that if they do not settle, the company will go after them for 10 times as much when (if) the case goes to court.
An official list of offenders has not been given to Voltage Pictures, but they do have the IP addresses of the accused.
All we can say is that hurts.
