XM, Warner settle lawsuit over recording device

By on December 26, 2007, 8:25 PM
XM Satellite Radio has settled a lawsuit brought forth by Warner Music Group over XMs Pioneer Inno, enabling XM listeners to record music from the record label on XM devices.

XM also struck a similar deal earlier this month with Universal Music, which had also filed suit against the satellite radio provider arguing that the licenses granted to XM were for broadcast only, and did not include the right to enable customers to make recordings of the media. Both agreements are multi-year deals that cover current XM radios and future devices.
