RIAA files suit against 2 more Penn students


The Recording Industry Association of America has filed two more lawsuits against unnamed Internet users at Penn.

The two defendants are accused of illegally uploading copyrighted music onto Internet file-sharing programs.

The University received a subpoena demanding the identity of the two Internet users in late December. The RIAA is able to trace the Internet Protocol addresses of file-sharers to a service provider -- like Penn -- but from there they need the cooperation of the provider to determine the identity of the perpetrators.

According to a precedent set by an Oct. 12 ruling by the Eastern District Court of Pennsylvania, the accused have a three-week grace period before their provider must reveal their identity. The deadline for the names of the two accused Penn users to be revealed is Jan. 20.

In accordance with the October ruling, the University has informed the two users of the lawsuit.

The suits were part of a massive wave of litigation that the RIAA filed on Dec. 16. The copyright infringement lawsuits named 754 "John Doe" file-sharers, which are actually just 754 IP addresses. Users from other universities were targeted as well, including Columbia University, Old Dominion University, the State University of West Georgia, Westchester University and Widener University.
