Congress has long supported anti-piracy measures like Sopa – but that hasn't stopped its employees from illegally downloading
Employees of the Us Congress were found to be downloading a host of television shows and movies illegally on congressional computers, according to a report by anti-piracy service ScanEye.
The report shared by Us News and World Reports showed that since early October, congressional employees have downloaded movies and television shows including The Walking Dead, The Dark Knight Rises and 30 Rock.
The report demonstrates that even though Congress has found itself at the forefront of measures to stop piracy, including the much-maligned Stop Online Piracy Act (Sopa), its staff do not always follow the legislators' lead.
By tracking IP addresses associated with Congress and running them through location services, ScanEye was able to determine which addresses were illegally downloading. It is possible that more people than shown could be illegally downloading from congressional »
