    There is a lot of money that is lost by musicians (and other entertainers) over the internet. It will be interesting to see what if anything of substance comes from this threat to sue.

    Wow, looks like Jay Z just admitted to plagiarising today. Apparently, he copied a Swiss Jazz musician's melody, and agreed to pay him royalties. I wonder if this case has anything to do with it...maybe he was scared to go to court. This is the only site I could find with more info.
