RIAA Wins Over iMesh in Court

The RIAA chalks up another win today from a previous lawsuit with iMesh. iMesh has agreed to pay RIAA $4.1 million dollars for copyright infringement even though it's an Israeli software company. Just goes to show you the RIAA will get you no matter where you live.

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.
