IAC/InterActiveCorp Message Board

    Shareholders may also want to consider the possibility of action taken by Hollywood movie studios against P2P programs like Ares

    Frostwire and their financial backers such as IAC. Now that the $200M LimeWire lawsuit has been formally dropped due to LimeWire's bankruptcy and a recent $110M victory against intransigent torrent site Isohunt has been won, rightsholders are surely looking for their next litigation target. While it would surely be difficult to enforce a judgement against the developers of FrostWire, the same could not be said for a multinational conglomerate like IAC that does business with file sharing programs and movie pirates. The piracy ecosystem has many players from the most obvious operators of movie piracy sites to the middlemen who supply the advertising to the end advertisers who ultimately fund the entire operation. That ecosystem is gradually being disassembled, but so far, despite legal victories against sites like Isohunt, Hollywood studios have not made a dent in online piracy because the ultimate financiers of piracy have been free to operate without interference.
