New class action lawsuit filed against iTunes, record labels, others

Dawg Music, a small label run by bluegrass musician David Grisman and his business partner Craig Miller, accuses those who carry Grisman's catalog of knowingly selling his works with sometimes poor or nonexistent compensation, and without his consent. The suit implicates both labels and their online store partners. Two of the largest record producers in the industry, Universal Music Group and Warner Music, are alleged to have neglected Dawg Music's copyrights and royalties when signing deals with major online services.

Online stores are guilty by association, according to the complaint. The suit claims that in addition to iTunes, seven other outlets -- AOL Music Now, Buy.com, Microsoft's MSN.com, Napster, RealNetworks' Rhapsody, Wal-Mart.com, and Yahoo Music -- "are also culpable by agreeing to host and sell the unsanctioned copies from their servers," notes AppleInsider.

The Tools of Change for Publishing (TOC) Conference will explore how technology is sparking creativity and inspiring conversation for leading change in the industry. Participants include innovators from every corner of the book publishing world, who will deliver enlightening keynotes, informative sessions, and useful analysis, shedding light on the challenges and opportunities ahead.
