Hollywood brings and to court for copyright infringement

cinematube.gifssupload.gif The Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA), on behalf of the major Hollywood movie studios, has filed lawsuits in federal court in Los Angeles against and – Web sites that facilitate copyright infringement on the Internet.

Cinematube and Ssupload both highlight on their sites the availability of the latest in pirated movies that are all too often still in theatrical release. Both sites enjoy significant profits via third party advertisers and user donations.

“No matter how you slice it, the sole purpose of these sites is to disseminate and profit from creative content that has been illegally reproduced and distributed. We will continue to scour the Internet for these illegal sites, and through lawsuits such as these we are putting illegal Web operators on notice that they are not above the law and will face serious consequences for their activities,” said John Malcolm, Executive Vice President and Director of Worldwide Anti-Piracy Operations for the MPAA.

I’m just wondering why this group sued only 2 Websites when a simple Google search for “free movies” will yield hundreds of sites, blogs, and forums promoting piracy. Even Google is indifferent towards piracy, as claimed by a legal watchdog group.
