Submission + - Comcast Allegedly Confirms that Prenda Planted Porn Torrents (arstechnica.com)

lightbox32 writes: Porn-trolling operation Prenda Law sued thousands for illegally downloading porn files over BitTorrent. Now, a new document from Comcast appears to confirm suspicions that it was actually Prenda mastermind John Steele who uploaded those files.
The allegations about uploading porn to The Pirate Bay to create a "honeypot" to lure downloaders first became public in June, when an expert report filed by Delvan Neville was filed in a Florida case. The allegations gained steam when The Pirate Bay dug through its own backup tapes to find more evidence linking John Steele to an account called sharkmp4.
