Music industry goes into attack mode against Internet pirates
The music industry is back on the offensive, going after downloaders and uploaders as it escalates its drive to stamp out online piracy.
Overnight, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), which represents the world's music companies, launched a fresh wave of 8000 lawsuits against alleged file-sharers in 17 countries around the world.
The trade group said more than 1 billion music tracks were illegally downloaded last year in Brazil, the largest market in Latin America. Record company revenue has nearly halved in Brazil since 2000, IFPI said. IFPI has said some 20 billion songs were illegally downloaded worldwide last year.
