Warner Brothers v. Seeqpod

News:  Seeqpod is a search engine that locates music files on the Internet and allows you to play whatever you find on a music player that appears on the Seeqpod page.  The music is not stored on Seeqpod, as I understand it, but on third party sites that are identified in the search engine.

Warner Brothers Music has sued Seeqpod for copyright infringement.  Seeqpod will be invoking one of the safe harbors under the DMCA for search tools.  Ars Technica has an excellent discussion, as does EFF’s Fred von Lohmann.

Analysis:  I’ll have more to say after I read the complaint.
