Profiles of Lawsuit Targets

Who’s targeted by music swapping suits? Interesting look at three targets of the RIAA lawsuits — one claims ignorance to the activity, another admits his guilt, and the third claims ignorance to the law.

“The targets of the first lawsuits against music fans who share songs on the Internet include an elderly man in Texas who rarely uses his computer, a Yale University professor and an unemployed woman in New York who says she didn’t know she was breaking the law.”
