I'm only showing part of the article here. Go to the URL above for the full article.

Last week, the Congressional International Anti-Piracy Caucus held a press conference with RIAA CEO Mitch Bainwol. They rolled out a new list of six horrific websites that make copyright infringement simple—and that just might destroy your job and family.

"An Internet of chaos may meet a utopian vision but surely undermines the societal values of safe and secure families and job and revenue-creating commerce," said Bainwol. "Shining the spotlight on these websites sends a vital message to users, advertisers, payment processors and governments around the world."

Canadian-based isoHunt found itself on the list and it wasn't pleased about the inclusion.

"One person's 'worst search engine' is another person's 'robust search engine'," said isoHunt's attorney, Ira Rothken, when I spoke with him this week. "If the RIAA has a problem with the manifestation of torrent files throughout the world on the Internet," he added, the group should take it out on those who host the torrent files.

isoHunt is just a search engine, he argues, citing a 90 percent overlap between the torrent files indexed by isoHunt and torrent files available through a Google search.

He has a point.  8)
