IN THE NEWS: PANDORA LAWSUIT FILED BY RECORD LABELS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Oldies, but goodies are the latest battleground in the fight between major record labels and a major music streaming service. The labels are suing Internet radio giant Pandora for copyright infringement for using songs recorded before 1972 without paying license fees. The labels -- which include divisions of Sony, Warner and Universal -- claim songs like Aretha Franklin's "Respect" and the Beatles' "Hey Jude" aren't covered by federal copyright law -- but are protected in common law by states, which include New York. The labels say Pandora and similar services have deprived the artists and labels of tens of millions of dollars each year. The labels also sued satellite radio company Sirius XM Holdings Inc. last year in a similar case. Pandora says in a statement that it is "confident in its legal position" and expects the matter to be resolved quickly.

It's aimed at stopping the practice of jilted lovers from posting explicit pictures of their ex's to get back at them for leaving the relationship. Last year, California made it a misdemeanor to post such images.
