Mr. Fung is the Canadian owner of Isohunt.com, one of the most popular torrent search engines on the Internet, which is used by thousands of Web surfers looking to download music, movies and computer games. Isohunt indexes BitTorrent files, a technology commonly used to quickly transfer various media files, many of which are copyrighted.
