A federal judge is siding with the recording industry in rejecting motions filed on behalf of two University of Maine System college students who are being sued for allegedly illegally downloading music onto their computers on campus, according to a report from the Boston Globe. District Court Judge John Woodcock issued a 34-page ruling rejecting arguments that the lawsuit should be dismissed. The suit filed by the Recording Industry Association of America alleges copyright infringement by the students, whose names have not been made public. It is similar to thousands of other lawsuits filed nationally that attempt to rein in file-sharing on campuses.
