XM Sued Over Copyright Infringement

The RIAA sure was quick to jump all over this one. They are suing XM Satellite Radio because the Inno portable media device is capable of downloading and storing songs, therefore infringing on copyright. The RIAA is seeking $150,000 per song downloaded. Damn!

It is unfortunate that this has to happen because the Inno is one of the first true portable satellite radio devices, because it has an antenna. XM plans on strongly defending this lawsuit, so the case is likely to be tied up in courts for quite a while. Just enough time for you to get an Inno ordered before it is gone forever.
