Recording Industry Sues Students For File Trading

The recording industry has sued four students who run Napster-like file-sharing sites at three universities. “The suits ask for the highest damages allowable by law, which range up to $150,000 per copyright infringement or, in other words, per pirated song. If awarded, the judgments could run in the millions of dollars. ‘Frankly, we are hopeful this round of lawsuits will send a message to others that they should immediately cease and desist’.”
