MP3Tunes' Michael Robertson Loses Copyright Infringement Suit

Michael Robertson, the founder of online music site another related, cloud music storage service, has been found liable in a copyright infringement lawsuit against him filed by Capital Records. A federal jury in New York found both Robertson--as well as his now bankrupt San Diego company, for copyright infringement, with a judge now set to award damages in the case. MP3Tunes filed for bankruptcy back in 2012, after overwhelming legal costs against a battle with EMI drove the company out of business. MP3Tunes had offered up an online music locker letting users upload their music in the cloud, and allowing them to stream music to anywhere. The biggest issues in the lawsuit came over widespread use of by users to upload songs they did not own.
