“The recording industry filed lawsuits Tuesday against 89 people suspected of illegally sharing songs using the computer networks of 21 major universities, including Stanford University and UC Berkeley.

The Recording Industry Association of America filed 532 new lawsuits in the trade group’s battle against individuals who share songs for free using programs like Kazaa. The new round of suits includes 13 people identified as John Doe defendants in three lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.”

My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
