Yahoo settles with Sony Music: Yahoo has settled with Sony Music Entertainment as part of a lawsuit filed by the recording industry against its subsidiary Launch Media. The lawsuit, filed in May 2001 by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), alleged that Launch violated copyright laws by giving its Web radio listeners too much control over their song choices. As a penalty, Yahoo will make a onetime payment to Sony for its past use, and the portal will enter into a nonexclusive license to broadcast Sony’s songs on its LaunchCast radio service.
