thelostagency writes “Girish Kumar, managing director of Aiplex Software says his company is being hired by the film industry to attack online pirates. He says if a provider did not do anything to remove the link or content hosted on its site, his company would launch what is known as a denial-of-service (DoS) attack on the offending computer server. From the article: ‘Kumar said that at the moment most of the payment for his company’s services came from the film industry in India. “We are tied up with more than 30 companies in Bollywood. They are the major production houses.” As for Hollywood films, he said they, too, used his services.’”
