LOS ANGELES -- Attorneys general from 45 states sent letters to seven companies that offer online file-sharing software, hinting at possible legal consequences if the networks don't better inform computer users about potential copyright violations from sharing files.

But a legal expert questioned how file sharing might break state laws.

The correspondence Thursday signals the states' willingness to go after the purveyors of Kazaa, Morpheus and other similar peer-to-peer software, which entertainment companies contend are profiting from the unauthorized distribution of songs, movies and software by users of their programs.
