Los Angeles (PRWEB) January 13, 2011
On December 21, 2010, CEO of CBS Leslie Moonves issued a statement to the Hollywood Reporter (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/blogs/thr-esq/filmons-alki-david-challenges-cbs-62052) regarding Alki David’s “incendiary video” which was posted on YouTube and which detailed CNET/CBS Interactive’s participation in widespread, “malicious copyright infringement” (United States District Court Southern District of New York -- 06 CV 5936 (KMW)). Mr. Moonves was quoted as saying that, “He (Alki David) is hardly an expert on intellectual property rights. CNET respects such rights” (CBS vs FilmOn Southern District 1:2010cv07532).
In response Billlionaire Alki David said, "Whilst looking for evidence to bolster my fight with CBS, my eyes were opened to a terrible injustice. I love America and it saddens me that a great symbol of American culture like CBS can be soiled by the greed and racketeering of so few."
Mr. David has just released a second video in response, which can be found at http://www.viaconned.com. The video is even more fact filled and includes a discussion by a leading copyright expert, Michael Zeller of Quinn Emanuel.
As demonstrated in the new video and supported by Court documents, CNET.com -- also known as download.com -- was responsible for distributing 95.5% of all LimeWire downloads. In May 2010, U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood granted a summary judgment in favor of the music industry's claims that LimeWire's software maker and its founder Mark Gorton committed copyright infringement, engaged in unfair competition, and induced copyright infringement (United States District Court Southern District of New York -- 06 CV 5936 (KMW)).
