  1. A U.S. music industry group said Monday it has sued 493 more people for copyright infringement as part of its campaign to stop consumers from copying music over the Internet.

    The Recording Industry Association of America has now sued nearly 3,000 individuals since last September in an attempt to discourage people from copying songs through peer-to-peer networks like Kazaa and LimeWire.

    I must say I'm really happy to be living in norway where I can download as much music as I want to, as long as I don't share what I've got...
    (Meaning I can download from web pages, but not using WinMx, Kazaa etc) :D

    But how long I'll have that possiblity is another matter.
    (I'd imagine RIAA leaning heavily on our politicians to get the option closed, and any download made illegal)
