Japan's RIAA wins appeal


Big Music?s Japanese RIAA clone, the RIAJ, ?will continuously take drastic measures against .. illegal use of music on the Internet that corrupts the ?cycle of music creation? and leads to decline of the music culture,? it says.

This utterance came as Tokyo's High Court dismissed an appeal against its earlier ruling against Japan MMO and its boss Michihito Matsuda, ?who were offering file-sharing services on the Internet, called the FILEROGUE,? says the RIAJ.

?On December 17, 2003, the Tokyo District Court issued its judgment and ordered Japan MMO and Michihito Matsuda to cease their service and jointly pay 36.89 million Japanese yen (close to $344,000) in total for damages on records of 19 contract artists, each of which 19 plaintiffs (RIAJ member record companies and their affiliates) chose to claim for remedy,? it states.

?The defendants disagreed with this court ruling and appealed against it, which the Tokyo High Court today judged to dismiss. RIAJ applauds today's judgment of the Tokyo High Court as it found that the former judgment of the Tokyo District Court was proper and arguments by the 19 RIAJ members and their affiliates were valid, having claimed that the defendants' service was illegal.?

Big Music and its enforcers never sleep in their thankless, ceaseless war against the evils of p2p and file sharing.
