Saving music in the cloud is legal

The record digested bad that Amazon opened its Music Store service in the cloud without a license pact with them. They still must have felt worse than a federal judge in New York believes that these services do not violate copyright because they are not obliged to review all content to tinker with their customers, ultimately responsible for the files that go to these stores virtual.

It is a bitter sweet victory for EMI labels in particular and in general, and the sentence that condemns partially MP3Tunes and its founder, Michael Robertson, legalize the cloud services of Amazon, Google and Apple if it is ratified. The case dates back to 2007, when EMI MP3Tunes sued for copyright infringement.

Three years later the only judge sentence the defendant in part because he believes U.S. law (DMCA, by its initials in English) protects him quickly if you remove infringing material when they notify their owners, as it actually did to delete the files MP3Tunes the list of results Sidel.

This search of his property located on the Internet music and transfer it directly to the virtual store. Instead, the judge condemns MP3Tunes not use the same method, removing the songs reported in each of the warehouses of its customers. He also believes that the founder of the service is guilty of uploading music to their own particular without permission.
