Report: XM Asks Judge To Throw Out "Inno" Lawsuit
July 18, 2006 at 1:40 PM (PT)
XM has asked a federal judge to throw out the copyright lawsuit filed against the company by the RIAA over the satcaster's handheld digital player, "Inno," which can store up to 50 hours of music for a monthly fee (NET NEWS 5/16), reports the AP.
XM is pushing the judge to toss the case on the basis of the 1992 HOME RECORDING AUDIO ACT, which XM claims protects the company from being sued. As previously reported, the RIAA has accused XM of "massive wholesale infringement" of label copyrights because the device can record music and automatically organize the recordings by song and artist.
