Three cheers for the jackasses at Homeland Security. In their neverending quest to keep us safe from bad dialogue they’ve made their first ever criminal bit torrent bust.
Employing technology known as BitTorrent, the Elite Torrents network attracted more than 133,000 members and, in the last four months, allegedly facilitated the illegal distribution of more than 17,800 titles – including movies and software – which were downloaded 2.1 million times.
I feel safer now.
Our interns over at BoingBoing are keeping track of the story. We’re much too lazy to.
