Online music provider Project Playlist is being sued by nine major labels for "massive infringement" of their copyrights.

The web site allows users to play and share music with others for free. The site has a large index of songs users can search for recordings by their favorite artists. "At the click of a mouse," the lawsuit said, "Project Playlist instantly streams a digital performance of the selected recording to the user, who can listen to it on his or her computer or mobile device."

Project Playlist allows its users to embed their playlists on social networking sites including Facebook, and MySpace. The record labels said Project Playlist brings in more than 600,000 users daily, with around 9.5 million average views per day.

The nine labels in the suit are: Warner Music Group Corp’s Atlantic Recording Corp, Elektra Entertainment Group Inc and Warner Bros. Records Inc; EMI Group Plc’s Capitol Records LLC, Priority Records LLC and Virgin Records America Inc; Interscope Records, Motown Record Co LP and UMG Recordings Inc, labels of Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Group.

    With the new Orphan Works Act of 2008 that’s being railroaded through congress on the fast track, Project Playlist would have been able to claim that they simply did not find a match between the song and a formally registered copyright. In any case, by Summer, the ability of the nine labels to actually receive compensation for the copyright infringement will be more difficult and limited to paltry amounts if they’re able to prove, not that they held the copyright, but whether PP did perform due diligence.

    This law is going to make the whole idea of copyright protection a thing of the past.

    You would think that instead of sueing them, they would capture their 600000 listeners and market to them. They would also bring those guys on board to market their current artists.
