RIAA goes after 19 John Does at George Washington University

By Justin Mann on
The RIAA has found a fresh batch of victims, shortly after their victory in court over an infringer in Oregon. Now, 19 unnamed people (likely students) at George Washington University will be targeted by the RIAA after a Judge granted their request to serve the University with a subpoena.

The evidence the RIAA is presenting is the same before; a list of IP addresses matched to timestamps. No names are yet behind those IPs, and the University hasn't mentioned what their reaction will be. While an increasing number of people have been willing to fight back at these lawsuits, some of the more profound losses in court (such as the $220,000 awarded to the RIAA in the most recent case) might prove to be a powerful scare tactic to prevent them from doing such.
