FilmOn Founder Launched Class Action Lawsuit Against CNET

Rights owners harmed by the LimeWire file-sharing client are about to join in a class action suit against CBS, which is accused of distributing the applications with malicious intent to infringe. The lawsuit hints that copyright holders could share in damages many billions of dollars.


Just a few weeks ago FilmOn owner Alki David accused CNET of distributing unauthorized software enabling users to circumvent DRM technology. These actions, he believes, infringe the Copyright Act. The same is said about other applications allowing people to illegally stream and download copyrighted content.

In fact, this lawsuit was launched in response to claims by some TV broadcasters, including CNET, that FilmOn is involved in unauthorized retransmission of copyrighted programming. Now FilmOn founder is pushing forward a call for solicits copyright owners to join a class action suit, suggesting “all legal fees paid.” He invited everyone to join a lawsuit against CNET, which is accused of distributing the LimeWire application with “malicious intent” to violate copyright.

To attract people, Alki David shows court papers from the previous LimeWire injunction, which has been issued two months ago. The documents say that visitors to CNET’s Download.com website actually downloaded LimeWire client over 152 million times. This figure is believed to be enough proof of the extensive damage done to rights owners.

While David claims that there’s nothing illegal in file-sharing the application, he points out that distributing software with the malicious intent to violate copyright makes it illegal. In addition, David provides video clips featuring some of CNET and CBS employees, advocating the use of unauthorized DRM-circumvention software.

Indeed, it looks like CBS wants to have it both ways: while it intends to sue someone for unauthorized retransmission of copyrighted programming, it continues offering software letting users to do the same. Moreover, it even went the extra mile and was selling advertising on the download pages!

Now it is not clear how many rights owners will choose to join FilmOn’s class action suit, but there are no reasons for it to be any different from those initiated against such firms as Real Networks for distributing their RealDVD backup software.
