Major Labels Sue Megaupload The RIAA has filed a lawsuit against now-defunct file sharing service Megaupload, on behalf of the major labels. The suit comes on the heels of a similar suit from the film industry. Megaupload was founded by the outspoken Kim Dotcom, who was arrested in a raid on his mansion in 2012. The suit was filed on behalf of Warner Music Group, Universal Music, Sony Music and Capitol Records. According to a statement on the RIAA website, the suit accuses Megaupload of "engaging in massive copyright infringement of sound recordings."
In its complaint, filed in the Eastern District of Virginia, RIAA stated that Dotcom, Chief Technical Operator and co-founder Mathias Ortmann, majority shareholder Vestor Limited, and head programmer and Uploader Rewards program manager Bram van der Kolk all "willfully engaged in, actively encouraged, and handsomely profited from massive copyright infringement of music on the Megaupload service before they were indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on criminal charges."
The suit itself contains a list of 87 songs from artists such as Katy Perry, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Muse and many others, as evidence of Megaupload's copyright infringement.
Pumpkins Adore Again Billy Corgan has announced that the deluxe reissue of The Smashing Pumpkins' 1998 album Adore will be out this summer. The six CD box set will include Adore in stereo and mono, with three discs of unreleased material and a live DVD. In a blog post announcing the reissue, Corgan said, "One thing that might excite fans of the album is that we were able to go back and locate elements from the original sessions that were stored digitally, but never used; such as some of the brilliant work done by Bon Harris. In that fresh mixes have been commissioned, shedding new light on not only the songs hidden foundations, but their futuristic nature as well."
