8 "Does" A Week

Be wary, John Does. The Recording Industry is coming after you (at least in western Missouri) for copyright infringement on the web (e.g., "online media distribution system") and hoping to discover your true identity based on your IP address alone. Wasn't it just so much easier to identify people when we had Naptster?

Is the legality of this practice questionable? I realize there is probably precedent for this issue, but it strikes me as pretty creepy.
