Submission + - US Copyright Group: Lawsuits, DDOS, Bomb Threats (arstechnica.com)

Andorin writes: The US law firm of Dunlap, Grubb, & Weaver, otherwise known as the US Copyright Group, filed suit at the end of August against another 2,177 individuals for allegedly downloading and sharing the slasher film Cornered!. (In total the USCG has now filed suit against over 16,200 individuals.) In retaliation, Operation Payback, the Anonymous-led project responsible for DDOSing websites of the RIAA and MPAA, targeted the US Copyright Group's website with a DDOS, temporarily bringing it down for a few hours. Additionally, the local police department evacuated the office of Dunlap, Grubb, & Weaver after a bomb threat was emailed to the firm. The building was searched but no bomb was found.
