Sony Settled Piracy Lawsuit With Russian Social Network

Sony Music has finally settled its lawsuit against popular Russian social networking website VKontakte (InTouch) over facilitating massive piracy. The parties didn’t disclose details of the agreement, but it seems that the Russian Facebook is going to start monetizing its music service.

All copyright holders in the world have been branded VKontakte, or VK, as a piracy facilitator since the very beginning. Like many other user-generated services, VK allows its millions of users to upload any videos or music tracks, and most of them are pirated copies of the copyrighted works. Rights owners claim that VK has failed to adopt proper anti-piracy measures. Their complaints finally resulted in a lawsuit, in which Universal Music, Sony Music and Warner Music demanded countermeasures and compensation for the mass-scale copyright infringement facilitated by VKontakte.

This lawsuit is still ongoing, but Sony Music has suddenly dropped out, and media reports claim that this is because it signed a confidential settlement agreement to resolve the dispute. The parties didn’t officially disclose any details of the deal, but it seems that VK will upgrade its current music service. For example, VK may start charging mobile users for access to its official music platform – and iOS users already have no access to music via the VK official app, as the attempts to play the track redirect to iTunes store to purchase it. As for desktop users, they will still have free access, but in this case music will be monetized through advertisements.

In the meantime, the remaining cases filed by Universal Music and Warner Music haven’t been resolved yet, and those demand about $830,000 in damages in their complaint.

Sounds like business as usual.
