We Won!

After six years, the suit filed against LAUNCH by the music labels about LAUNCHcast is over. We won!

Billboard has the story. I’m proud that all those crazy hours I spent building LAUNCHcast from 1999 to 2002 were vindicated.

I had the experience of testifying in federal court for this, actually the first witness in the case. The whole process was alternately completely fascinating and utterly boring.

Perhaps I have a future as an expert witness. :-)

Update: Billboard has finally posted their summary of the closing arguments. There’s some big errors in here though. Some of the points about the code refer to my testimony.
