MP3.com Ruling

from the stupid-rulings dept

Well, not a really big surprise, but the federal judge today ruled that MP3.com willfully infringed Universal's copyrights, and thus owes $25,000 for each violation. This is beyond stupid in that there's no way MP3.com cost Universal even a small portion of that with its My.MP3.com service. Anyway, it should make Edgar Bronfman happy.
