Als reactie op de rechtszaak die de RIAA tegen Diamond had aangespannen ivm de Rio MP3 player is Diamond nu z'n eigen rechtszaak begonnen tegen de amerikaanse muziekindustrie. Wie ettert kan iets terug verwachten?
Hier wat stuff van ABC News:
“The lawsuit against Diamond is a product of a conspiracy between the RIAA and others to restrain trade and restrict competition” among makers of devices such as the Rio, said Andrew Bridges, Diamond’s attorney in the matter.
Diamond, a maker of high-tech products for computers used in homes, businesses and elsewhere, also alleges the RIAA’s suit has “damaged Diamond’s profitability and credibility” in the market for these products. Diamond is seeking treble and punitive damages of an unspecified amount in its suit.
“Clearly this is a legal maneuver that has no foundation in fact or law,” said an RIAA spokesman. He declined further comment, saying the group has yet to see Diamond’s filing.
