EMI vs. MP3tunes Lawsuit Could Help Make Google Music & iTunes In The Cloud A Reality
Mp3Tunes and MP3.com founder Michael Robertson wrote in on Thanksgiving morning to comment on our post New Label Piracy Concerns Could Force Google Music To Delay Christmas Launch saying: "If we prevail (in court vs. EMI) then Google doesn't need a license and neither does Apple".
Of course, one court battle usually leads to another. But if he's right and does win, perhaps we can get past the silly idea that storing music online is some kind of "additional use".
Or maybe dreams will come true and rightsholders will realize that making fans wait for another lawsuit to settle how much access they have to music only leads to discontent and further alienation.
