Judge requires website to spy on people

I find this pretty appalling:

On May 29, TorrentSpy - one of the web's most famous .torrent dump sites was told by federal judge Jacqueline Chooljian in the Central District of California that despite the site's privacy policy which states they will never monitor their visitors without consent, they must start creating logs detailing their user's activities.

TorrentySpy isn’t backing down and has filed an appeal. Their attorney says that if they don’t prevail in their appeal (and let’s hope they do), they’ll likely shut off their US services rather than spy on their own users.
