MediaDefender, a company known to associate with the MPAA, put up a website intended to entrap catch would-be pirates by offering a program download that claimed to speed up downloads. The website was MiiVi.com.

The program actually searched your computer for illegal files and sent the info back to them. Well, the internets got word of this and sprung into action.

By exposing the website and scheme, internet crusaders forced MediaDefender to shut that mother down. When will the MPAA learn that they can't catch pirates by using the same strategy as an annoying pop-up promising to get rid of annoying pop-ups?
