Actually maybe we can take the oppuntunity to do a press release stating we're not associated with MPAA nor distributing copyrighted materials. Also the filters are just not completed yet and the site were meant for internal testing only.
If we continue not to respond to the false accusations and let miivi die, it's like silently admitting that all the rumors are true.

PIRATE TRAP SET BY MPAA
The MPAA has set up a decoy website aimed at snagging pirates, according to the website blorge.com (whose motto is "technology with attitude"). According to the website, Media Defender, operating on behalf of the MPAA, has set up a site dubbed MiiVi.com that offers "fast and easy video downloading all in one great site" including software that it says speeds up the downloading process. However, according to blorge.com, the software actually searches the computer for other copyrighted files and sends the information back to Media Defender.
