This isn’t about music, but you can bet there’ll be plenty of music industry lawyers cheering the news that six book publishers have won an injunction against file-hosting firm Rapidshare, forcing it to monitor uploads of 148 specific titles, and prevent them from being made available on the site. The case was brought by Bedford, Freeman & Worth and Macmillan, Cengage Learning, Elsevier, The McGraw-Hill Companies and Pearson.
