Record Companies Take Action Against Illegal Downloading

The companies filed suit in Lubbock Federal Court Wednesday, hoping to force a local Internet provider to release the names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mails of the alleged offenders. The recording companies say they have identified five suspects by a unique Internet address. The companies say they have evidence of every file that the suspects downloaded, which adds up to more than 5 thousand files.

The suspects allegedly used a service provided by Sterling Student Housing Management. That company used to own University Pointe and University Trails Apartments, just east of Texas Tech, but they have since sold the properties to GMH communities. The recording companies are asking that the suspects be forced to stop distributing illegal files. They are also seeking damages for each infringement, court costs, and attorneys' fees.
