Warner Music sues social network site for piracy
NEW YORK, May 15 (Reuters) – Warner Music Group Corp. , the world's fourth-largest music company, on Tuesday sued Imeem Inc., a music-based social networking Web site, for copyright infringement.
In a suit filed at the U.S. District Court, Central District of California, Warner accused Imeem of building a base of 16 million users by capitalizing on the "illegal use of 'free music'."
Imeem users can create profiles and connect with each other through their music tastes by uploading MP3s to create 'playlists' which they share with other users.
Imeem's backers include Morgenthaler Ventures.
