Recording industry seeks to sue Ohio University students
(WOUB) - Ohio University has received a subpoena to turn over the names of 14 students accused of illegally downloading music to the Recording Industry Association of America.

The university says in a news release that the action is part of an ongoing campaign by the RIAA to stop the illegal sharing of music on college campuses across the country.

The university contacted 100 students on behalf of the association in February, notifying them of a lawsuit RIAA was planning to file if the students did not enter into a settlement.

Ohio University was one of more than 30 universities targeted.
