EFF on RIAA's Latest P2P Lawsuits

PRESS RELEASE
April 3, 2003

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) today announced that it has filed lawsuits against four college students, accusing them of running "Napster-like" services inside their university networks.

"This is another in a string of unfortunate efforts by the recording industry to treat music fans like criminals," said Fred von Lohmann, senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation. "File-sharing is here to stay--more Americans have used Kazaa than voted for President Bush. The answer is not more lawsuits, but making file-sharing legal while getting artists paid."
