EMI, XM settle Inno suit

Record label EMI has finally reached a settlement in a lawsuit against XM Satellite Radio, Reuters notes. The former sued XM over Pioneer's Inno music player, which lets people record on-air streams. EMI considered this a potential violation of copyright, as the player does not distinguish between authorized and unauthorized music, much like cassette players recording off of FM radio. Terms of the settlement have not been announced.

EMI's deal follows settlements by the other three major labels, which include Warner, Universal and Sony BMG. All of their complaints were resolved in December of last year, suggesting that EMI may have had unusual demands. Through organizations like the RIAA, the four majors frequently operate in concert.
