The Recording Industry Association of America continues its aggressive legal campaign against online file swappers. Today they have filed lawsuits against yet another 532, so far unnamed individuals. The new lawsuits bring the total number of sued people up to 914.
The Recording Industry Association of America launched its largest wave of file-swapping lawsuits Wednesday, filing new copyright infringement suits against 532 currently unnamed individuals.
The suits are the industry group's first since an appeals court in December blocked its original strategy of identifying alleged file swappers before filing lawsuits by sending subpoenas to their Internet service providers. As a result, Wednesday's legal actions target hundreds of unnamed or "John Doe" computer users, whose identities will be added to the suits only after a court process likely to take several weeks.Source: News.com
