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.
