Recording industry sues more U.S. file-swappers

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The recording industry on Wednesday
filed its latest round of copyright infringement lawsuits,
targeting 754 people it claims used online file-sharing
networks to illegally trade in songs.

The lawsuits were filed in federal district courts across
the country, including California, Colorado, Georgia, Missouri,
New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

The world's major record labels, represented by the
Recording Industry Association of America, have filed more than
14,000 such lawsuits since September 2003.
