RIAA scales up legal attack

In response to the record industry's announcement today of five new lawsuits targeting 531 more music filesharers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) renewed its efforts to make sure that the lawsuits adequately protect the rights of the unnamed alleged music filesharers.

EFF pointed out that the record industry failed to follow the basic rules required in all lawsuits when it lumped people into lawsuits filed in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Orlando, and Trenton, New Jersey. The cases include alleged filesharers located throughout the United States who acted independently, using various filesharing software and allegedly downloading a wide variety of different music. Also, the record industry has not ensured accused filesharers a means for reviewing and responding to potentially incorrect accusations before ISPs reveal their identities.
