Over 700mb of their own internal emails, dating back over 6 months have been leaked to the internet in what will be a devastating blow to the company. Many are very recent, having September 2007 dates and the majority involve the most senior people in the company. Apparently this is not the first time that a MediaDefender email leaked onto the Internet.Link (Thanks, Christian!) Discuss Next post

It states: "By releasing these emails we hope to secure the privacy and personal integrity of all peer-to-peer users.
