    "A lawsuit filed Wednesday accuses the Motion Picture Association of America
    of hiring a hacker to steal information from a company that the MPAA has
    accused of helping copyright violators.

    The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of
    California by Torrentspy.com parent Valence Media, doesn't identify the man
    the company says was approached by an MPAA executive. But the suit calls
    the man a former associate of one of the plaintiffs and alleges that he was
    asked to retrieve private information on Torrentspy.com, a search engine
    that directs people to download links."
