RIAA Files More Lawsuits

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) filed 531 “John Doe” lawsuits today against suspected users of illicit peer-to-peer file-sharing services, Billboard.biz reports. The suits will be bundled in five lawsuits and filed in federal courts in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Trenton, N.J., and Orlando, Fla.

In January, the RIAA filed 532 such suits after an appeals court ruled the trade group could not employ so-called information subpoenas to get the names and addresses of suspected infringers from their Internet service providers.

Including today’s suits, the RIAA has to date filed 1,445 lawsuits in its campaign against individuals suspected of illegally trading music files over the Internet.
