Court Issues Mixed Verdict for Music Locker Service

A New York district court handed EMI Group a mixed verdict in its multi-year lawsuit against MP3tunes, a San Diego music locker service founded by controversial technology entrepreneur Michael Robertson. The lawsuit, filed in November 2007, contended that MP3tunes and Robertson personally violated copyright law when they allowed users to find music online and add songs to an online locker service that let them listen to those songs from any Internet connection.
