RIAA sues 717 file-swappers

New lawsuits against alleged file-swappers include 68 unnamed people at universities.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) said Thursday that it had filed 717 new lawsuits against alleged file-swappers, including 68 unnamed people at universities.

The suits come several days after the record label group filed its arguments with the Supreme Court in a case examining the broader legal liability of file-swapping software companies. Movie studios also filed their own second round of lawsuits against individual computer users on Wednesday.
