  • Music:

Turn the tables

Here's an idea, let's sue the music industry for conspiring to put alternative music distribution networks out of business.

Prominent California attorney William Lerach has now launched a class action suit against the labels on behalf of consumers who have allegedly been overcharged for music. This in itself is not particularly surprising given the ongoing federal investigation into the same topic, but the lawsuit does contain some interesting tidbits. For instance, the suit claims that the music labels fought tooth and nail against the arrival of online music stores, and that they did so by launching their own poorly-conceived (on purpose) online ventures.

Maybe this kind of thing should be called a classy action.
