RIAA Wins Over iMesh in Court

Published: 2004-07-21
In a court settlement with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and iMesh, the software company agreed to pay $4.1 million for copyright infringement. Previously US courts have ruled that the software companies are not liable for what consumers do with the software.

IMesh is an Israeli software company who created software for users to search and download music files. The software, which is similar to Kaaza has been downloaded more than 75 million times. Also as a part of the settlement, iMesh has agreed to change the software so that it can no longer be used to download music illegally.

This latest settlement is seen as a victory by the RIAA.
