725 more file sharers sued; 10,037 total (!)

725 more file sharers sued; 10,037 total (!) Making up for March's skipped litigation, the RIAA filed a second round of April lawsuits this week against 725 file sharers for copyright infringement. Perhaps answering my question from earlier this month, the latest press release no longer mentions that only university students are being sued.

The total number of file sharers sued has now broken the five-digit barrier, coming in at 10,037 people sued by the RIAA since September 2003. This is an astounding figure.

Well, I have to agree with you there. I don't share my extensive collection. What I think the problem here is that the RIAA and MPAA has a bit too much control over lawsuits. Even if you haven't done anything (i.e., they have filed suits against dead people, people without computers, kids who downloaded one song, etc.) you have to pay up, it's too expensive to fight the lawsuits. I believe that Bush just recently signed a law that would send people who share movies to a longer term in jail than most murders. Something is a bit tilted in this scenario. The bands are NOT the people losing money here, they get shit pay anyway. It's the large corporations against the small people with a computer.
