RIAA sues more Webcasters
The record industry contends this influence violates copyright law and sued Launch Media late last month. It is asking that the Webcasters' countersuit, which involves the companies sued Friday--MusicMatch, MTVi and Xact Radio--be joined to its original lawsuit against Launch Media. Separately, the RIAA and Listen.com said they have resolved differences over the issue. Listen.com said it agreed to withdraw parts of its radio service and took its name off the suit against the RIAA. As a result, it was not among the companies sued Friday.
