Yahoo writes: "Tempted to see what the fuss over Oscar winner "The Hurt Locker" is all about? Tread lightly, and keep away from file-sharing networks, because Voltage Pictures, which produced the film, is suing upwards of 50,000 individuals who allegedly pirated the film online, according to the Hollywood Reporter's media-law blog.
In the world of anti-piracy litigation, that number is staggering. Here's how to put it in perspective.
