Court rules iHeart Radio music streaming of pre-1972 songs doesn’t violate Georgia copyright law

In Monday’s unanimous opinion, the state Supreme Court ruled at the least iHeart’s services qualify as a related use to a radio broadcast because the user’s experience is nearly identical to AM/FM radio. For example, a simulcast of programing on an AM/FM station is offered on the internet, with the only difference being that the listener accesses the music through an internet-connected device instead of a traditional radio receiver. – Amy Leigh Womack, The Telegraph http://ift.tt/2nWj5n8
