“Last year, Blue Destiny Records, a small blues-oriented music label, sued Google, Microsoft and Rapidshare in Florida. The label claimed that Rapidshare was running "a distribution center for unlawful copies of copyrighted works," and that Google and Microsoft's Bing search engine were helping to prop up the company. But in late March, Blue Destiny voluntarily withdrew its lawsuit. Google then asked the company to waive the right to pursue its copyright allegations. According to Google, the label refused, preserving its option to refile its claims,” Billboard explains. Now Google has decided that it wants the court battle. The company has filed a 96-page complaint “Google Inc. v. Blues Destiny Records, LLC” with the California district court, asking for a declaratory judgment that it's not infringing Blue Destiny's copyrights.
