Hot on the heels of its success in the deCSS DVDCCA v. Bunner case, the
Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has joined MusicCity's legal defense
team in a case testing the limits of Hollywood's power to control new
technologies. "This case is about the freedom of technologists to innovate
and the public's right to communicate," said EFF attorney Fred von Lohmann.
Twenty-nine of the world's largest entertainment companies have sued
MusicCity, the Nashville-based developer of the leading p2p app Morpheus,
which lets users connect with each other and share information of all kinds.
The entertainment companies claim MusicCity should be held responsible for
the alleged copyright infringements committed by Morpheus users.
