TorrentSpy, one of the largest and most popular torrent dump sites, may soon become another piece of bait in the MPAA's ongoing efforts to track down and prosecute copyright infringers. The site has already been in legal trouble before, the target of an MPAA lawsuit in February 2006, but has resisted any change in policy. This may come to an end, due to a decision by the California Central District Court last month, in which federal judge Jacqueline Chooljian has ordered the site to create logs detailing individual user activity. These logs are then to be turned over to the MPAA for review. Judge Chooljian consequently granted a stay of the order, allowing TorrentSpy until June 12 to file an appeal.
