San Diego – Despite claims in court filings that major
record label EMI has only ever made three songs available for free download, a
blogger-fueled survey found nearly 1,400 songs from EMI-represented artists
available, according to MP3.com founder Michael Robertson — whose current venture MP3tunes is being sued by EMI for copyright
infringement. "This list is just a fraction of the songs EMI makes
available, but it’s irrefutable that EMI uses free song files as
promotion," writes Robertson. "Astonishingly they are still telling
the court that they don’t authorize song files to be distributed for free."
