Fox's Piracy Czar Subpoenas YouTube over Pirated "24" and "Simpsons" Episodes

“D’oh! Twentieth Century Fox has subpoenaed YouTube to reveal the identity of users who uploaded four episodes of the TV series “24” and twelve episodes of “The Simpsons,” Google Watch has learned.”

Here we go again…


Seriously, who’s dumb enough to provide their real names when signing up to a site when they are expecting to upload illegal content? :stuck_out_tongue:

Well, Maybe these guys?

These episodes of “24” had apparently not been shown on TV, which is presumably why the action is so vigorous.

It doesn’t take much thought to realise that the leaked episodes must have originated within Fox or its own distribution network.
