The lawsuit (_http://dw.com.com/redir?destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.techfirm.com%2Fts-mpaa.pdf&siteId=3&oId=2100-1030-6076665&ontId=1023&lop=nl.ex), filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California by Torrentspy.com parent Valence Media, doesn't identify the man the company says was approached by an MPAA executive. But the suit calls the man a former associate of one of the plaintiffs and alleges that he was asked to retrieve private information on Torrentspy.com, a search engine that directs people to download links.

Torrentspy's complaint includes claims that the man whom the MPAA allegedly paid $15,000 to steal e-mail correspondence and trade secrets has admitted his role in the plot and is cooperating with the company.
