Byte Rights: Music Copyright Vs. Basic CS 2

Good news, everybody! The courts have upset music label EMI with a ruling that not only preserves the DMCA safe harbor, but acknowledges basic laws of physics.

EMI was suing, a music cloud service founded by Michael Robertson, who also founded the first music locker,—that one was sued out of existence by Universal Music Group in 2000. Plenty of major players like Amazon, Google, and Apple were watching Robertson's round two after launching their own services. Because moving media from one format to another is a fair use, some cloud services had purportedly stored a copy of the song for every user on the system with that song in their library to protect themselves from labels. Let that sink in for a second: Under this legal theory, if Amazon sold 100,000 of Justin Bieber's "U Smile" for use in its cloud service, it had to keep 100,000 individual identical digital copies on disk at all times.
