MediaNet CEO Responds To $18M Aimee Mann Lawsuit

image from www.editorsmix.fmAimee Mann is suing MediaNet for $18M claiming distribution of her music without permission.  MediaNet provides licensing and backend services to dozens of major sites including Songza and Frank Johnson, CEO of MediaNet responds: 

“This claim on behalf of Aimee Mann is without merit. MediaNet has had a
license for her music since December 2003. We have been paying royalties
regularly to her agents on her behalf. MediaNet is a supporter of artist rights
and copyright and has been since we launched in 2001. We expect this matter
will be resolved.”
