MP3Board trial set for May

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 19 Mar 2001 12:52

MP3Board.com, one of the biggest MP3 sites in the world, and RIAA, Recording Industry Association of America, are going to go to court in late May in New York.
MP3Board and RIAA have sued each other over MP3Board's website and the links users have posted to the website. These links are linking mostly to illegal MP3 files, but since they're not stored on MP3Board's servers and are not submitted by MP3Board staff, they think that they're not violating DMCA.

A hearing will be held this week on summary judgment motions; depending on how he proceeds with the motions, Judge Sidney Stein could push the trial date back further.
