Project Playlist Gettin’ Sued Kinda for Being Google…

According to the NYT a group of music labels are suing the website Project Playlist:

“The website compiles a vast index of songs on the Internet and users can “quickly and easily search the index for recordings by their favorite artists. At the click of a mouse, Project Playlist instantly streams a digital performance of the selected recording to the user, who can listen to it on his or her computer or mobile device,” the lawsuit said.

So, to be clear, they are suing this one particular site because they are doing a really good job pointing people to where music (copywritten or otherwise) is already being stored for public access somewhere on the internet.

Isn’t that basically what Google does?
