MP3Tunes: Another District Court Gets the DMCA (Mostly) Right

Yesterday the Southern District of New York issued an opinion in Capitol Records v. MP3Tunes.  Since both EFF and Techdirt have published extensive posts about the case, I won't repeat what they have to say.  In summary, the court adopted most of the reasoning supporting broad DMCA protection expressed by previous district court opinions, such as UMG v. Veoh and Viacom v. YouTube.  The pending appeals in those two cases will affect the MP3Tunes case, of course (particularly the Second Circuit appeal in Viacom).

UPDATE: Here is Eric Goldman's post about the case.
