RIAA Lawsuit Against XM To Proceed

EFF IN THE NEWS

A U.S. district judge has allowed a major lawsuit brought by the recording industry against XM Satellite Radio to proceed...

In a May interview, Fred von Lohmann, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation who practices digital copyright law, described the RIAA lawsuit as "a stretch." He thinks AHRA will ultimately protect XM: "The Audio Home Recording Act--which the lawsuit conspicuously fails to mention--gives XM and Sirius a pretty good defense. As far as I know, every one of these devices was designed to conform to the AHRA."
