RIAA Sues More University Students
Just weeks after announcing that it would join the Internet2 consortium as a corporate member, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has filed another set of lawsuits against students using the next-generation research network for illicit file trading.
64 people were named in the suits across 17 universities, the RIAA said. The new filings bring the total number sued to 560 people on 39 campuses, all for running the i2hub P2P application on Internet2. In addition, the RIAA filed another 693 John Doe lawsuits against users of other online file sharing networks including eDonkey and LimeWire.
