Online Movie Network Shut Down

Update: Screenshot from MSNBC:

An AP newswire article by Mark Sherman on Yahoo! News:

Federal authorities on Wednesday shut down an online file-sharing network that had the new Stars War movie before it was shown in theaters.

The Elite Torrents network was engaging in high-tech piracy by allowing people to download copies of movies and other copyright material for free, authorities said.

The action was the first criminal enforcement against individuals who are using cutting-edge BitTorrent technology, Justice and Homeland Security Department officials said.
