Revision3 and Media Defender

Lots of coverage in the last two days about a Memorial Day weekend attack that took down the servers of Revision3, an Internet video network. This story has a lot of ingredients—P2P maneuvering, DDoS attack, copyright vs. piracy, talk of laws broken and the FBI investigating.

What’s the CircleID take?

Don’t know where the first part of that truncated sentence in original post went. There’s been a lot of coverage of the Memorial Day weekend incident, wanted to see what you folks have heard about it.

Sorry our fault. The sentence got cut off accidentally, it’s fixed now.
