Late last year, the RIAA made a big deal about how they wanted to join the Internet2 group as a member. It was obvious from the beginning that the only reason they wanted to do so was to track to people file sharing on the network. They did make some noises about using the faster Internet2 technology to test out better digital distribution techniques, but the real interest was in finding a few more people to sue. In that, they've been successful. The latest round of lawsuits targets file sharers on Internet2.
