MP3.com Hit Hard in Court

NPR's Rick Karr reports from New York on a federal judge's damage award in the case that a record label brought against MP3.com. Judge Jed Rakoff ruled MP3.com services infringed on Universal Music Group's copyrights by allowing MP3 users to listen to CD's they own from any computer with an internet connection. The damages could amount to hundreds of millions of dollars.
