New Irma action likely on music downloads

The Irish Recorded Music Association (Irma), an industry body for music labels in Ireland, is likely to launch a second wave of legal actions against people it believes are downloading music illegally from the internet.

6th August, 2005

The body's director general, Dick Doyle, said that while the decision was to yet to be approved, it would be a sensible move.

Last month, the organisation pursued 17 individuals accused ofmaking large libraries of songs available to other internet users through a format known as file-sharing.

Seven of them agreed to settlements of between €2,000 and €6,000 and agreed to desist from future illegal filesharing.
