From Ars Technica

The Internet—or rather, that subsection of it called "Anonymous" that organizes through 4chan—has had it with the RIAA, MPAA, and other antipiracy outfits. This weekend, the angry masses staged a distributed denial of service attack on the sites, bringing them down for a few hours.

"Didn't realize this was so easy to do with a big enough crowd. Power to the people," wrote one Twitter user.



The attacks were organized over the last few days, first focusing on the MPAA website and Aiplex, an Indian company that does antipiracy work for Bollywood studios. The target then shifted to the RIAA yesterday, and the UK's BPI music trade group today.
