Scour, a company that is currently under fire from MPAA, fired 52 of their 64 employees yesterday. Only the executives and senior engineers were left, everybody else had to go.
Scour is a old company in web history and their Scour.net service has been very famous for a long time. But they got under massive lawsuit threat after they launched their SX Scour Exchange service in April that works almost as Napster, but allowing users to share also pictures, movies, etc..

MPAA sued Scour little after the launch and Scour has hired a "legal dream team" to defend itself in court.
