MP3.com is once again at the centre of alleged copyright infringements - this time with two US music publishers.
Only two months after the Recording Industry of America (RIA) filed a lawsuit against MP3.com for alleged copyright violations, music publisher Harry Fox has slapped on one of its own.
The lawsuit has been filed on behalf of two New York based music publishing companies represented by Harry Fox - MPL Communications and Peer International. The publishers control copyrights to tracks which are allegedly being illegally distributed over the internet by MP3.com.
The suit centres on MP3.com's hugely popular Mymp3 instant listening service, which offers consumers instant access to digital copies of CDs they already own, as well as CDs bought through MP3.com partners. The suit claims the service violates copyright laws and that MP3.com has duplicated over 80,000 copyrighted CDs.
The RIA's suit is also bound up in Mymp.3, claiming that it is not legal to compile a database of its members' material without their permission.
