among others noted that seeqpod
earned the legal attention of Warner Music. Claims include "Direct Copyright Infringement" "Contributory Copyright Infringement" "Vicarious Copyright Infringement" "Inducing Copyright Infringement" yeah, and a bunch of others. It's funny to me that the news story on their website today is about their earnings conference call

The suit names names of WMG artists affected by seeqpod's induction of copyright infringement: Neil Young, Madonna, Greenday, Ramones, Twista, Busta Rymes, Black Sabbath, Zepplin, a-ha (?), The Doors, Chicago... Chicago? C'mon. Though I'll admit to having listened to the Ramones recently this just a really bad playlist.

I suspect there will be a bunch of mashed-up Web 2.x knots to untangle in the courts. Just wait till you can play a seeqpod playlist on your iphone: This'll piss everyone off. Let's watch this one.
