An organisation set up in the US to track down and punish illegal file-sharers is coming under increasing scrutiny from civil liberty groups.
The US Copyright Group (USCG) has been working on behalf of a range of movie makers, most notably those behind box office hit The Hurt Locker.
It has pledged to target 150,000 illegal downloaders in coming months.
But civil rights groups have questioned its motives.
