After only a matter of few weeks of being in the US, Spotify is already being sued! PacketVideo has that Spotify is infringing on their copyright. They filed a copyright patent back in 95 for a central memory device that allows users to connect and hear music. Why they have not sued other services like Rhapsody or Napster is unclear.
If this is indeed a copyright infringement as they suggest, wouldn’t that mean most cloud based computing infringed on their copyright? It seems like this year has been a year of lawsuits for technology. This is the third one off the top of my head and I doubt it will be slowing down anytime. I wonder if this will affect cloud computing in anyway? Most of you know that I am not a supporter and I told you why in one post. So I don’t have to say why I am not upset at the idea of cloud computing being trouble. After all, fairy tales do have to end at some point.
What do you think this will do to Spoitfy and cloud computing?
