    In yesterday, there was organized worldwide an assault distributed of refusal of service against the web pages of the SGAE, the Department of Culture and Promusicae. The action forms a part of the so called "Operation Payback", whose end is to protest against the lobbies antipiracy, and already it takes accumulated a few assaults against other foreign organizations (MPAA, RIAA, BPI, BREIN, etc.) and legal signatures that have worked with them.

    The movement arose initially in the forums of 4Chan, organized by Anonymous users, but one has extended for many more webs and forums. In Pandalabs's blog they have done a complete follow-up, beside interviewing one of the anonymous ringleaders.

    It informative of the TV also they have echoed the news (in Spanish of course):

    Too bad none of this has really reached American TV (that I've seen). Keep up the good work, Anonymous!

    Aren't there better targets like the ESRB? I never even heard of this organization (SGAE) before. Sorry if I seem a little ignorant. Other than that, Anonymous rock!

    Somehow, I doubt that. And not just because they can probably type 'LOLWUT?!' pretty fast. Besides, they already took down the Motion Picture Association of America's site, so if Obama didn't do anything then, I doubt he would if they attacked another American anti-piracy organization.

    Why would anyone target the ESRB? The ESRB is in place for good reasons and serves its purpose fairly well (I wish the same could be said about game retailers). Young children should not be allowed to buy M rated games. Its up to their parents to decide if their child is mature enough to handle the themes that are present in M rated games. Sorry if it seems like I'm yelling at you, but I really can't see why you think that. I do apologize if I offended you

    Have you ever stopped to think other people from countries where they don't speak English might know English?

    I don't recall any of this happening and I browse 4chan frequently (hours every day). Must be a /b/ thing or some other group that people assumed was 4chan.
