E-Commerce News: Legal : Record Labels Sue XM Satellite Radio
"Consumers' Rights at Issue

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in New York by the largest labels, seeks $150,000 in damages for every song copied by XM Satellite customers using the devices, which went on sale weeks ago. The company says it plays 160,000 different songs every month.

The lawsuit does not seek directly any payments from or sanctions against XM Satellite customers who record songs. However, if the lawsuit were successful, it could raise the company's costs, which could be passed on to subscribers as higher monthly fees.

XM Satellite promised to fight the lawsuit and accused the labels of using the courts as leverage during business negotiations.

"These are legal devices that allow consumers to listen to and record radio just as the law has allowed for decades," it said in a statement. "The music labels are trying to stifle innovation, limit consumer choice and roll back consumers' rights to record content for their personal use.""
