Torrent Networks with Star Wars Downloads Busted

FBI has shut down the servers of Elite Torrents network, which was recently distributing illegal copies of “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” before it appeared in movie theaters, Reuters reports. FBI executed 10 search warrants, grabbed the main server. Elite had 133,000 members collectively downloaded 2.1 million files, including 18,000 different movies and software programs. Looks like the torrent crackdown has begun in earnest, and is likely to continue for sometime.
