    ZDNET:

    Continuing its war on Internet file-swapping sites, the Motion Picture Association of America said Thursday that it has filed lawsuits against a half-dozen hubs for TV show trading.

    The trade association said that piracy of TV programming is growing quickly online, and that shows are as important to protect as big-budget films. This is the first legal action from the group that has focused most heavily on TV content.

    "Every television series depends on other markets (such as) syndication and international sales to earn back the enormous investment required to produce the comedies and dramas we all enjoy," MPAA Chief Executive Officer Dan Glickman said in a statement. "Those markets are substantially hurt when that content is stolen."

    The latest round of suits retains a focus on BitTorrent technology, which has been widely used online to distribute movies and films.

    The suits are focused on the sites that serve as traffic directors for BitTorrent swaps, rather than on individual computer users uploading and downloading content. The MPAA also has sued individuals, but has not said how many people have been targeted.

    The six sites sued Thursday include ShunTV, Zonatracker, Btefnet, Scifi-Classics, CDDVDHeaven and Bragginrights.

    KenDaMan writes "ZDNet.com is reporting that the MPAA is targeting websites that serve as traffic directors for BitTorrent swaps. From the article: 'Continuing its war on Internet file-swapping sites, the Motion Picture Association of America said Thursday that it has filed lawsuits against a half-dozen hubs for TV show trading.' Apparently it is OK to record TV as long as your aren't sharing it."

    btefnet.net was a great site. The quality was always so high... b'ah. Where am I going to get my high quality TV shows from now?

    I always understood that uploading TV shows (as long as they weren't DVD rips) wasn't illegal... shows how wrong I was.

    When ever I missed a TV show, or wanted to keep something, I used to get it from btefnet - miles higher quality that videoing it, or any other site, it's on your computer, and they upload so soon after it's on TV.

    My question is, really, what alternatives do we have now, for getting TV shows after they've been on TV - at such a high quality. I mean, who were the people that captured and uploaded the TV shows, and are they still doing it somewhere else (Someone else mentioned IRC - but I don't really know what that is).
