Submission + - TorrentLitigation Offers Database on File-Sharing Lawsuits (

Dangerous_Minds writes: Freezenet recently profiled a website called TorrentLitigation. The website documents the file-sharing related litigation that is going on, then compiles them in a database of multi-Jon Doe lawsuits filed in the US. The database organizes the lawsuits by plaintiff and jurisdiction. There is even a list of files that plaintiffs have been most suing people over. Adam E. Urbanczyk of TorrentLitigation made a number of interesting comments including this: "The website has always been designed to be an objectively-minded “portal” through which website visitors – usually individuals on the receiving end of federal copyright infringement or state-based hacking cases, but also other attorneys and inquisitive individuals – can educate themselves and, if need be, seek our assistance."
