    Default Old chaps should learn a bit more on what they are dealing with.

    If allowed to stand, the groundbreaking ruling may mean that anyone defending themselves in a civil suit could be required to turn over information in their computer's RAM hardware, which could force companies and individuals to store vast amounts of data, say technology experts. Roaming the Web anonymously was already nearly impossible. This ruling, which brings up serious privacy issues, could make it a lot harder.

    So we shouldn't use torrentspy? I have used it before downloaded a .torrent but never actually used the .torrent its self. I wonder if I am going to get looked into... This still isn't in effect though right?
