(KSL News) A federal judge has ordered a Utah County Internet company to help identify four people accused of music piracy.
A group of music companies filed suit against the four, who are only known by their Web addresses. A Provo company will now help track down the suspects' personal information.
The Deseret Morning News reports the four allegedly downloaded hundreds of pirated music files from a peer-to-peer file-sharing network.
The music industry has as many as 18,000 similar suits against people across the country. This is the first suit of its kind in Utah.
