Idol Sued
MTV reports: The owners and creators of "American Idol" are being sued by a fan who says the show stole his idea for a Web game based on the singing competition. Adam Pick claims in a lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles Superior Court that he invented an interactive fantasy game called "Idol Go Home," in which people could reverse the voting process by picking who should get booted instead of who should win.... Pick claims show representatives said they weren't interested, but that Pick could launch his own site. Once he did so, Pick says, "Idol" demanded that he shut down the site, while at the same time, according to his lawsuit, "Idol" modified its site to incorporate Pick's ideas.

punkbands reports: Fall Out Boy's new beef is with the producers of Kidz Bop 10, the latest in the mega-successful series of albums featuring groups of youngsters "reinterpreting" the top radio hits of the day.

Labels Suing Fans?
tinfoil reports: MediaServices' AllofMP3.com is a Russian site pointing out one of the ways a successful online music market could be developed.

It prices downloads by file size rather than a straight fee per item. But it's an indie so naturally, the Big Four Organized Music members are trying to destroy it. And not content with that, they now seem ready to sic their IFPI on British AllofMP3.com punters, who can download an album for as little as £0.75 (about $1.40). Against that, a download from iTunes, supplied by EMI, Warner Music, Vivendi Universal and Sony BMG, can cost £9.79 (almost $18.20). As part of their latest marketing innovation, the Big Four's IFPI (International Federation of Phonographic Industry) is now threatening UK AllofMP3.com users, claiming they're infringing copyright.
