Wired: RIAA Wins Suit Against MP3.com
"Months of legal wrangling came to a head Friday when Judge Jed S.
Rakoff for the Southern District of New York issued a terse order
holding MP3.com "liable for copyright infringement."
"Rakoff said in the one-page order that he would explain his verdict
in two weeks. The judge and counsel for each side will meet at 5 p.m.
EDT Friday to discuss how the ruling will be implemented, said a
consultant for the RIAA."
"We think this is a loss for the labels," Robertson said in a
conference call. "When a responsible system like my.mp3.com which
requires people to buy the CDs before they can listen to the music is
potentially halted, that leaves a vacuum for other services like
Napster and Gnutella, which don't protect artists, to flourish."
