Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - April 10, 2002
Currently trying to nail a Thomson multimedia company for piracy (see this
issue), the RIAA has announced
a $3.2 million settlement with CD manufacturer DOCdata USA to, "resolve
claims of copyright infringement."
DOCdata had, says the RIAA, "pressed dozens of infringing CDs." [NOTE to the
RIAA - you 'burn' CD's and 'press' records.]
"DOCdata's forthright willingness to examine its own practices and share the
information with the RIAA significantly helped us settle this case," said
RIAA spokesman Matt Oppenheim.
The RIAA say it has also settled out-of-court for $1 million with Integrated
Information Systems Inc, a high tech company that, claims the RIAA, "ran a
dedicated server permitting its employees to access and distribute thousands
of infringing MP3 files over the corporate network."
