Music's Biggest Lawsuits

MCS vs. Microsoft, Yahoo, and RealNetworks

In 2009, Music Copyright Solutions alleged that Microsoft, Yahoo, and RealNetworks improperly licensed the rights to more than 200 compositions that they offered as on-demand streams or limited downloads via the Zune Marketplace, Yahoo Music, and Rhapsody. They clam that copyright violations have lead to damages of $900,000 and the potential liability for each defendant could number into the tens of billions of dollars.—Xfinity Music Programmers (AP Photo/Vadim Ghirda)
