MP3Tunes Sued Into Bankruptcy

I would say that I'm surprised by this news but, to be honest, the entertainment industry has been using this tactic for years.

MP3tunes.com was sued out of existence by EMI, one of the four top record companies, according to founder Michael Robertson, a technology entrepreneur who started Linspire, MP3.com and DAR.fm. In 2007, EMI accused MP3tunes.com of violating its copyright and so ensued more than four years of litigation, heaping loads of legal costs onto the start-up music service.
