The final straw for Imeem before it sold up to MySpace was a copyright infringement lawsuit from The Orchard, as we reported last month. Now Imeem has been fined $1.77 million – more than the amount it sold for – by a US court in a default judgement after failing to respond to the suit. Will MySpace have to foot the bill for the fine then? It seems unclear – a spokesperson tells GigaOM that it was not involved in the lawsuit. In separate news, MySpace has replaced embedded Imeem playlists with adverts for ringtones and its own MySpace Music service – meaning that any site or blog that had embedded an Imeem playlist in a story will now see an ad there instead.
