This is so f-cking stupid. I don't even know where to begin Essentially, they're getting sued for posting quotes. I get they're making money off the site, but it's idiotic and there are too many gray areas.

Regardless if they made a profit or not ANYONE can post lyrics to anysite (& if its their own site, they themselves can see a profit)....the industry has now became a bunch of attention wh0ores themselves & are hosting pity parties across the board.

It's a default judgment, meaning judgment was entered because the defendant didn't respond, not because plaintiff brought a good case.

What's this mean for Rap Genius, and other sites that use ads to help pay for the servers?

Wait...Any site that has copyrighted material(pics, even those credit to their original source), and uses ads to generate revenue, may also have to deal with bullsh*t like this.

They don't even need to pass a bill like ACTA then, do they?

Entertainment companies are mad that the internet crippled profits because they didn't adapt to the changing times. Now movies are bootlegged and that new music cd thats set to drop next week; you get early because some dude uploaded it and now everybodies got it. Now their throwing tantrums suing people over petty sh*t.

I bet if people just went to the movies instead of downloading them or if people actually bought music, they wouldn't be fu*king with this petty sh*t.

The issue is that the site is making money off something they do not own. People keep saying "they're making money off the ads not the lyrics" but in reality the reason why he has enough people clicking ads to generate money is BECAUSE of the lyrics. It's not fair for the label to pay for artists to write music and then someone comes along and posts it up and starts making money with none of the investment risk. If you want to use something that I invested in then you're going to have to break bread..it's simple.
