1st page of IP addresses

In a copyright lawsuit filed by Third World Media, the porn studio accuses 1,568 people of illegally sharing one of its movies via P2P networks.

Accompanying the complaint was information, including Internet protocol addresses, belonging to the accused. CNET has removed those addresses to protect the privacy of those accused.

In all, the information filled 64 pages.

2nd Page of IP addresses

Listed on this page under the ISP heading is the Tennessee Board of Regents. This group governs the state's universities.

It is unclear whether the organization provides ISP services to its member schools. An attorney for the group said an investigation has been launched.

Also noteworthy on the page is Deutsche Telekom, based in Europe. Third World Media's lawyer declined to comment so it's unclear whether the studio intends to pursue copyright cases overseas.

Final page of IP addresses

More than likely, the ISPs whose customers are accused of illegal file sharing will soon receive a subpoena ordering them to hand over records belonging to the customers in question.

Some ISPs, such as Midcontinent Communications based in South Dakota, have resisted attempts to turn over records.
