Posted on Thu, Nov 2, 2006 at 4:00 AM

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) filed four lawsuits yesterday against individuals in Memphis and Jackson, Tennessee. The civil suits allege that the defendants — two Memphians, one person from Bartlett, one from Selmer — illegally swapped movies over the Internet. The MPAA states that $7 billion in revenue was lost due to Internet movie piracy. Fines can be as high as $150,000 per downloaded movie.
