Putting A Hurt On Illegal Downloaders: The producers of The Hurt Locker are working directly with the US Copyright Group in an effort to sue "tens of thousands" of people who illegally downloaded the film online. The Hurt Locker, which won an Oscar for Best Picture, only earned $16 million at the box office, but it was illegally downloaded over 10 million times. Ouch!

If you remember, the webcams on the laptops were activated remotely by the school system and basically spied on the kids. This is should make a very interesting lawsuit.
