RIAA Continues Download Lawsuits

The recording industry on Monday sued 493 more people it said were illegally sharing music across the Internet. The latest round of lawsuits raised to nearly 3,000 the number of people who have been sued nationwide by recording companies.

As in previous cases, the recording industry filed its latest complaints against "John Doe" defendants, identifying them only by their numeric Internet protocol addresses. It said lawyers will work through the courts to request subpoenas against universities and some commercial Internet providers to learn the defendants' names. The Recording Industry Association of America, the trade group for the largest labels, said none of the lawsuits filed Monday targeted Internet users at colleges or universities.
