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.
