Legal Issues Surrounding Online Music Storage
Are you worried about legal ramifications against online file locker services? I contacted the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an organization aimed at "defending freedom in the digital world," hoping to get a brief view of basic legal rights that users have.
The topic of users being safe from possible lawsuits is a hard topic to discuss, but "users are pretty safe," according to Fred von Lohmann, EFF senior staff attorney. "It'd be a long shot" to see the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) or other copyright holders attempt to take legal action against users.
