Via Wired, Shawn Hogan, who runs the incredibly popular DigitalPoint Forums and Tools has been sued by Universal Pictures and the Motion Picture Association of America for allegedly downloading Meet the Fockers over BitTorrent. Shawn denies this and has turned down the offer to settle the case for $2,500 - he wants to stand up for everyone who has been falsely accused and fight. Shawn said he is willing to "spend well into the millions on this." Wired calls Shawn a "Hero."

Let's show our support by dropping him a note in DigitalPoint Forum Thread his sister started for him.
