Computing News | RIAA Sues Another 751 File Swappers
The Recording Industry Association of America refuses to give up its legal efforts to stem the illicit use of P2P networks for trading copyrighted material, filing suit against another 751 individuals, including college students. The John Doe suits serve as placeholders until the RIAA can discover the users' identities.
The RIAA also re-filed 105 lawsuits against former John Does, whose names have come out during industry's investigations and court proceedings. The latest round of filings brings the total number of cases above 17,000 and follows 693 lawsuits the RIAA announced in September. NPD Group reported yesterday that use of file sharing networks has dropped, although the survey's accuracy has been questioned.
