Infringement Lawsuit Against CNET Significantly Reduced

Alki David, FilmOn.com owner, had complained that both CBS and CNET had earned money from unauthorized file-sharing software. He launched a lawsuit which was announced to become the most significant copyright violation lawsuit ever.


Currently things aren’t looking good for the plaintiffs and their copyright violation lawsuit launched against CNET Networks, Inc. and CBS Interactive Inc. It was a month ago that Alki David, along with a coalition of music and movie artists, accused CBS and CNET in a lawsuit started at LA Federal Court of having direct participation in global copyright violation on peer-to-peer systems by distributing unauthorized LimeWire software.

Back in 2010, District Judge Kimba Wood ruled that LimeWire was responsible for copyright violation, engaged in unfair competition, and encouraged others to violate the law. FilmOn.com owner was quick to claim that unauthorized file-sharing via LimeWire has led to enormous damage to everyone trying to make a living in the entertainment industry. He pointed out that since the number of artists joining this lawsuit rapidly increases, it can become the biggest copyright infringement lawsuit ever.

Today Davis must be disappointed with the news that his claim will most likely not be coming true. The matter is that the lawsuit has been cut down to only six copyrighted works, with none of them being familiar to the general public. For example, the list of works includes “Fishtales”, “Run Da Yard”, and “Topless”.

In their turn, CBS and CNET announced that they are confident in prevailing in the case. And even if they don’t, they would only face $900,000 or around so in damages, which is far from enough to become “the biggest copyright violation lawsuit ever”.
