Music Industry Sues 8,000 P2P Users in 17 Countries

Today, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IPFI), which represents record labels around the world, announced 8,000 lawsuits against P2P users in 17 countries. Over 31,000 lawsuits have now been filed worldwide against P2P users, including over 18,000 in the US. The Center for Technology and Society at FGV Law School in Brazil posted this petition against the P2P lawsuits there, which were the first filed in that country.
