Piracy is a huge international problem," said Mike Weatherley, former UK parliament member, in a statement to TorrentFreak. "The recent cyberattack on Sony and subsequent release of films to illegal websites is just one high-profile example of how criminals exploit others' intellectual property."

 

This isn't a new tactic by US and British politicians, as they want to find methods to get ISPs and technology companies to crack down on piracy.
