"The Recording Industry Association of America will file 405 lawsuits on Wednesday against individuals at 18 colleges across the country. The RIAA is targeting those who use a file sharing application called i2hub to distribute music on a 'massive scale,' said RIAA president Cary Sherman.
The i2hub software is a peer-to-peer, file-sharing application developed for 'student collaboration' on Internet2, according to the software's website. 'I2hub is the conduit in which students across the globe connect to share ideas, collaborate and form social networks in a real-time environment never before achieved," the site says."
