Anonymous Reader writes, "Joining forces with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), The RIAA has filed suit against the FastTrack powered troika of Morpheus, KaZaa, and Grokster for copyright infringement. The MPAA is involved because the FastTrack portals also trade movie files. Now both will try to shut down services that, by design, have made themselves more elusive than Napster. http://www.mp3newswire.net/stories/2001/sue_morphe us.html." The RIAA site also has a press release,and ZDNet has a story.
