Arizonans are being forced to defend themselves against high-dollar illegal-music lawsuits filed by the Recording Industry Association of America
By MARI HERRERAS
Deborah Weed would rather not be talking to a reporter or having her photo taken. The single mother would rather be focusing on her family, which she supports by working for a Phoenix construction company, surviving paycheck to paycheck.
Weed says she'd prefer to enjoy time with her daughter and granddaughter. Instead, much of her time is dedicated to a legal fight with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
In 2005, Weed and about 30,000 other Americans became part of what the RIAA calls its "tough-love" campaign, targeting music lovers who have allegedly shared or downloaded music illegally using the Internet.
