BlueBeat.com Gets Served

I’m sure you’ve heard by now the news of EMI suing BlueBeat.com, a Californian music download website, for offering unauthorised downloads and streaming of Beatles’ content. After being served the copyright infringement lawsuit by EMI, BlueBeat.com has come up with the most genius defense one can ever think of.

Their defense, or rather, the one they are rumored to respond to EMI¬†with in court, is that they have literally deconstructed the original Beatles’ content track-by-track, and then rebuilt it up from scratch, like Lego bricks, if you will. Except, the finished Lego structure is virtually an exact replica of the original content.

While their defense will most probably never hold up against EMI’s lawyers in court, some believe it’s worth a try.
