MP3BOARD SUIT REJECTED

Site’s Use Of Links Called Into Question;
HITS’ Morning Web Guy Gets A Little Nervous
A federal judge rejected a lawsuit by MP3Board.com that sought to protect its practice of offering Internet links to Web sites that may carry pirated music files.

U.S. District Judge Ronald Whyte's dismissal of the suit hands the Recording Industry Association of America a victory in its ongoing battle to control online music distribution, Bloomberg Business News offered.

MP3Board, which also faces a separate suit in New York brought by 13 record companies that allege MP3Board encourages copyright infringement, operates a Web site that posts links to some of the most commercially successful recordings in the world.

MP3Board had sued the RIAA in June, seeking a court order declaring that providing links does not violate copyright law (hitsdailydouble, 7/19).
