Musicians against CNET

A lawsuit involving Alki David plus a number of R&B and hip-hop musicians and CNET was started last November. The battle was headed by Alki David and involved a handful of musicians who sued CBSI’s subsidiary CNET for encouraging piracy by offering advice on how to use file-sharing platforms. Last July, a federal judge confirmed that CNET’s actions should be scrutinized. Finally, last November the artists asked for a preliminary injunction.

In response, CBS Interactive filed a 25-page memorandum a week ago, claiming that any suggestion that reports on the distribution of legitimate music via the BitTorrent protocol evidences intent to encourage infringement is just absurd. They point out that the injunction plaintiffs seek would substantially damage their business of providing a comprehensive index of software applications and editorial information about them.

The most interesting thing is that the injunction wouldn’t prevent either downloads of BitTorrent client software, or potential infringement of plaintiffs’ content. Even if CBSI were enjoined from linking to services providing downloads of BitTorrent applications, those would still remain available to Internet users and would still be easily found by a simple Google search – albeit without the warning against violation that CBSI provides.

In addition, the public interest would be damaged by denying legal and truthful data about a pervasive technology and by impending non-infringing uses.

The memorandum also stressed the fact that the plaintiffs didn’t prove not only the ownership of works, but also the irreversible damage done by CNET. The company also insists that “vague and broad requests for injunctive relief aimed targeting speech or the press raise serious First Amendment issues”.

CNET explained that it wasn’t planning to give any validation to a product which CBS is considering illegal, other networks considered illegal and one court has already found to violate the copyright act in its application. Except for that, CNET will cover every other product and service, or that’s what the company’s representative said when talking about the company’s decision to prohibit CNET from publishing reviews about such technologies as Dish Network-owned AutoHopper and Aereo’s TV streaming device.

ChaosReigns avatarFunny thing is anyone can download any song they want completely free legally from YouTube, where you can review the quality first. And with browsers such as Firefox or Chrome, there are extensions such as "Easy YouTube Video Downloader" or "Magic Actions for YouTube" that facilitate this easily into the formats desired.

No avatarI said this before... suing CNET for distributing software used to copyright infringement is a very very thin line. I don't see how this couldn't act as a precedent to make gun shops liable to who they sell to, car dealerships responsible for vehicle accidents, liquor stores for distributing a substance which when consumed in large quantities can lead to very numerous and serious offences.

Fine line "justice" fine line

No avatarHay TheBarcaShow, that line was crossed long ago! Bars have been sued for "over-serving", you can sue if you are sold a dangerous car, hell you can sue the manufacturer, the dealer and previous owner!! Big tobacco is a good analogy for liquor, I'm not sure why the government hasn't targeted liquor yet! Guns are protected by the NRA, for now....

There is big money being spent to buy politicians, if there was a hackers lobby things might be different!!

DigitalLogin avatarThe NRA is not a legal body and has no legislative nor enforcement powers.
It's really nothing more than a club.
Car dealers have been sued only when their product has been shown to be either materially defective or described falsely.
