iranian streaming movie site shut down
The Motion Picture Association (MPA) has acted to shut down a service that was allowing people to "rent" videos online for between $1.00 to $1.50 each. The site was based in Iran, which doesn't recognize U.S. Copyright law. Their servers, however, were in the Netherlands, and the Internet Service Provider (ISP) hosting the site shut it down in response to a letter sent by the Association.
