RIAA adds 477 more in the suit list


The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has filed 477 more lawsuits against people trading unauthorized music online, including lawsuits against 69 people who used university networks to download music.

Adding the latest 477 lawsuits, now the total count of the lawsuits from January is 1500. These lawsuits identified the unnamed file-traders through their IP addresses.

These actions are totally against the U.S. Court of Appeals decision that ruled the RIAA does not have authority under U.S. law to subpoena the names of alleged peer-to-peer file traders from ISPs.

Fourteen university networks across the US, were used by 69 major file-traders to swap music files, according to the RIAA. The RIAA will continue to work with universities to educate students about legal music download services and inform which activities are illegal, says RIIA President Cary Sherman in a statement.

Brown University issued a statement reacting to the lawsuits: "Brown University has not yet received notice of the lawsuits announced today by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). If the University is served with a subpoena that meets the requirements of the law, Brown will comply as fully as possible. Until the University is served, however, it does not know the extent of the RIAA action. Any Brown student found in violation of the law will also be subject to University disciplinary action."
