Fighting the MPAA

The August issue of Wired has a short item about Shawn Hogan, a millionaire software developer who has decided to fight an MPAA piracy lawsuit, rather than settling. David Goldenberg writes:

    Though he expects to incur more than $100,000 in legal fees, [Hogan] thinks it’s a small price to pay to challenge the MPAA’s tactics. “They’re completely abusing the system,” Hogan says. “I would spend well into the millions on this.”
