While reading an article on the BBC about a known piracy site known as IsoHunt is to shutdown and the owner is to be fined over a $100 million. This issue took me to question the changes in fighting piracy over the past years and how it is affecting many production companies. However, will it ever be enough to shut sites one by one? If one goes another will rise, it will never end. After the recent shutdown of Megavideo and Megaupload surely other sites will be soon targeted, but surely we will always find a way to illegally watch, listen and stream entertainment.
