Record industry sued for copyright infringement – $60 billion worth!



So the record industry is being sued for copyright infringement in Canada to the tune of around 60 billion dollars? What a delicious piece of cosmic irony. Nothing more to add.

 The infringer has effectively already admitted owing at least $50 million and the full claim could exceed $60 billion. If the dollars don’t shock, the target of the lawsuit undoubtedly will: The defendants in the case are Warner Music Canada, Sony BMG Music Canada, EMI Music Canada, and Universal Music Canada, the four primary members of the Canadian Recording Industry Association.

  • The link has been updated to $6billion and not $60billion. Still a lot in unpaid royalties though!
