The same thing happened when radios with tape recorders were introduced, and it got shot down in court. I'll be sad if we don't see the same result.
Here we go again with the RIAA...
I love the numbers they come up with. $150,000 for every copy of every song? Please.
You mean you dont pay that much when you buy a cd?
I would if the damned recording industry had it's way.
Round 3, FIGHT! [/Mortal Kombat voice]
Well, I guess this is what the music industry is doing this summer, I imagine they're getting tired of suing the hell out of poor college kids that can't afford to settle outside of court anymore.
Those lawyers have gotta pay for that Lamborghini somehow...
it happened when movie studios took VCR makers to court too.
Hoooo fucking boy... here we go again
Yeah, I'm a Sirius Whore. I've used both, but Sirius blows away XM in terms of content.
As for the lawsuit....no way XM should even be sued over this crap in the first place.
That statement applies to me as well.
Hmm...I still don't agree with the lawsuit, but it seems Sirus payed off the Record companies before they released their "S50" which does the same as the XM unit in the article.
hehe thats pretty acurate
this is why i hate the RIAA.. Next thing you know they will sue MTV, VH1, and local free radio stations.
*Quote from article*
"The suit accuses XM Satellite of "massive wholesale infringement," and seeks $150,000 in damages for every song copied by XM customers using the devices, which went on sale earlier this month. XM, with more than 6.5 million subscribers, said it plays 160,000 different songs every month."
This suit is ridiculous
so here we go again I take?
do they ever learn-cassete, vcr......are this people thinking that anything new is suicide for them?
What a greedy bunch of jackasses (thats in reference to the plaintiff in this case, not xm, or the people posting in this thread or anything, just so we're clear on that.)
So how long till they sue DirecTV with Tivo. They use XM radio and its free with service.
