Recording Industry Seeks To Sue Ohio University Students

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio University has received a subpoena to turn over the names of 14 students accused of illegally downloading music to the Recording Industry Association of America.

The university says in a news release that the action is part of an ongoing campaign by the R-I-A-A to stop the illegal sharing of music on college campuses across the country.

The university contacted 100 students on behalf of the association in February, notifying them of a lawsuit R-I-A-A was planning to file if the students did not enter into a settlement.

Ohio University was one of more than 30 universities targeted.
