A stipulation, dated 1/16/08 and filed 1/17/08, in the Capitol Records v. Multiply Inc. suit pending in the federal District Court, Southern District of New York (Judge Stein), granted defendant Multiply Inc. until February 15, 2008 to answer the complaint. Though an initial pretrial conference remains scheduled for 2/8/08, it is unlikely the public (and OTCS's loyal readers) will have access to any further information on this matter until that time -- unless, a settlement is reached and disclosed, the latter of which is unlikely.
...so stay tuned...
Of note, an electronic copy of the complaint with attached exhibits was too large a file to electronically file, and Judge Stein granted (by endorsed letter dated 1/2/08) Plaintiffs permission to file the exhibits as paper documents only. That is one large complaint!
