Reddit beats film companies who wanted torrent user identities exposed

Reddit has won a court fight with 20 movie production companies, saving it from being compelled to disclose the IP addresses and personal information of users that engaged in discussions about downloading torrents.

Ars Technica reports that a US federal court denied the producers their request to force Reddit to provide the details of six users subscribed to a specific Internet service provider (ISP).
