The Recording Industry Association of America

Lorraine Sullivan got sued by the RIAA. She says she would fight the lawsuit if she were able, but she is just a poor college student. She is asking for donations to pay her $2500 settlement, but has raised only $184 so far.

Traffic to the copy of Links to Tens of Thousands of Legal Music Downloads that I have on my own website has increased significantly since RIAA filed suit against 261 file traders on September 8th. I'm reporting some statistics for the article on this page. Notably, my article has been #1 at Google for the query legal music downloads since the middle of July, and the number of referrals I get for that and a lot of other queries has been rising steadily since the 8th.
