Fight between RIAA and several webcasters began in May when RIAA sued Launch because it offered "too interactive" webcasting service. After this, bunch of major webcasters, including MusicMatch and MTVi sued RIAA asking court to decide if their services fit within DMCA's description of webcast service.
