EMI Lawsuit Against Michael Robertson Dismissed... But Continues Against MP3Tunes
from the the- dept
The good news is that a judge has thrown out the part of the lawsuit directed personally at Robertson -- though the case against MP3Tunes will be allowed to continue. It appears that the suit against Robertson was tossed more for jurisdictional reasons than a recognition that it was a sleazy tactic to sue the founder personally, rather than focus just on the company. Hopefully, when the court hears the actual case, it recognizes that there's nothing wrong with storing your own music online in a locker -- but we'll have to wait for the full case to run its course.
