It looks like the RIAA is really trying to take it up a notch this spring and alienate more potential customers then they ever have before. Not content to just harass and extort money from college students, they apparently now going after the state of Mississippi as well. If you live in the southern state, watch out: they've tossed out eight lawsuits in Jackson and Aberdeen in the past week.

The RIAA says it's part of 63 new suits laid down recently. No word on whether or not the other suits are focused in particular areas or if all of those people are alive, have computers, or know anything about p2p file sharing.
