MP3.com asks approval for mistrial appeal

Written by Jari Ketola @ 27 Jun 2001 14:32

MP3.com has asked Federal Judge Jed Rakoff to approve its bid for an appeal in the copyright infringement suit filed agaist MP3.com by the independent record label TVT Records.
Last week judge Rakoff declared a mistrial in the MP3.com vs. TVT case after the jury had awarded TVT $300,000 in damages when they had actually intended an award of $3 million.

Should Rakoff refuse MP3.coms appeal, the company could appeal to a higher court. MP3.com will, of course, wait for Rakoff's decision before concidering further action.
