Isohunt sued

WHAT’S IN A NAME? Another file-sharing entity, Isohunt, a search engine that provides links to content on the BitTorrent network, could also be on its last legs. The company has asked a federal appellate court to block a lower court's injunction that would effectively shut it down, Wired.com reports. In May, a federal judge ordered the site to stop indexing links to copyrighted content, with entertainment companies to provide keywords for the site to block. Isohunt attorney Ira Rothken said that the injunction is too broad, as the MPAA has sent along a list of keywords to block that includes terms like "10" and "Wizard of Oz." "One person's copyrighted Wizard of Oz is another person's public domain work," Rothken told Wired. "The motion picture studios do not have a monopoly on names on things. That is where the injunction is violating the First Amendment." (6/18a)
