RIAA Continues Plan To Sue Every American, 500 People At A Time

from the this-looks-familiar dept

It what looks like nearly an identical article to ones a few months back, the RIAA has announced that they’re suing another 500 or so people for offering up music from their computers. The problem with this AP article, though, is that it misses the big question. Earlier this month, a judge told the RIAA they needed to sue each swapper individually, and not bunch them all together in a single lawsuit. The article here doesn’t make it clear whether each of the 532 John Does named in the lawsuits were filed individually, or if they were batched. That’s where the story is on this news item, and the AP seems to have missed it.
