MPAA say: "Don't bother with data when it comes to actual damages!"

http://j.mp/18m6T3n  (Torrent Freak)

     In a new filing submitted to a California federal court, the MPAA
     says that actual piracy damages "are not capable of meaningful
     measurement." The group fears that looking at actual damages in
     the isoHunt case would be "perverse" and "unfair." What the MPAA
     can measure, however, is how much it will take to bankrupt the
     BitTorrent search engine isoHunt. According to the movie studios,
     two to five million dollars will be enough to put the Canadian
     company out of business.
