Elsevier Files Lawsuit Against Site Providing Access to Pirated Articles

From TorrentFreak:

In common with other content behind paywalls, there are several specialized sites that allow the general public to download pirated copies of these academic works.

According to Elsevier the company is losing revenue because of these sites, so in order to stem the tide the publisher has filed a complaint (pdf) at a New York federal court hoping to shut them down.
