RIAA Sues Music Search Engine

  • April 30, 2008
The Recording Industry Association of America has sued music search engine Project Playlist, claiming that the service infringes copyright by making it easy for users to find and play pirated tracks. The company, which doesn't host files on its site, provides a player that can be embedded on social networking sites.

Sony BMG is the only major label that did not join in the lawsuit. Silicon Alley Insider reported Tuesday that Sony is in talks with Project Playlist.
