Music Labels Sued Hip-Hop Mixtape Site

A number of the largest record labels have sued Spinrilla, a popular hip-hop mixtape website and app. Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Bros. Records and Universal Music Group accuse Spinrilla’s operators of copyright infringement and claim damages that could reach millions of dollars.

Mixtapes have been part of the hip-hop culture for years, and one of such most popular online services today is Spinrilla. It allows users to stream and download tracks from its site or mobile app and accounts for hundreds of thousands of monthly users. The service got sued by the music labels, which claim that Spinrilla facilitates copyright infringement, allegedly offering over 21,000 tracks of music artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West.

The plaintiffs estimated that the Spinrilla Android app had been downloaded and installed several million times and was among the most popular music apps offered on the Google Play store. However, Spinrilla is not just another pirate website: the service was incorporated in the US, earns money through advertising and recently partnered with AOL.

At the same time, the RIAA believes that Spinrilla has crossed a line by offering copyrighted music without permission and hopes that the record labels will be compensated through the lawsuit and that an injunction will take Spinrilla offline. The copyright holders point out that consumers have access to millions of music tracks from innovative legitimate platforms and services that pay creators, and Spinrilla’s way of business has no place in today’s music marketplace.

Admiral_Smith avatarI remember the 1990s and there was a local popular business that did mixtapes. I did not think anything about it until mp3s were available. I mean that is like a mixtape by running a custom mp3 playlist

amebix avatarThe term "Mixtape" with in the hiphop scene is completely different then a "mixtape" of say "my favorite songs of 2002"
A mixtape can be an assortment of original and cover songs or songs done over the instrumentals of other songs. ...think of it as a remix, either official or not, done by original artist or up and coming indies who use tracks with out a license(AKA SAMPLING to a extreme degree at times)

Regardless this was the building blocks of hiphop/rap and what it is today. Unless I am missing something (say this website just has straight up songs ripped from CD to the site...)

Mike_Oxhard avatarWhats next? Outlawing Audacity because it can capture digital music from Spotify?
All this fuss about music that you can listen to for free on the radio.
I'm with Soup about not caring for Hip Hop, but I don't like the legal precedent this could set.
If this case succeeds, then, they will leverage the legal precedent to sue and close down other streaming sites, maybe even something you like.
It's like something I read once pertaining to Nazi Germany.
When they came for the communists, I said nothing, I was not a communist.
When they came for the Jews, I said nothing, I was not a Jew.
When they came for the intellectuals, I said nothing, I was not a intellectual.
When they came for the capitalists, I said nothing, I was not a capitalist.
And when they came for me, there was no one left to say anything.
Don't kid your self, these internet thugs are equivalent to 21st Century Nazis and all of us need to grow a pair and speak up.
