It’s the sixth in our series of special editions of Setlist looking at some of our favourite music industry legal battles of all time. CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke discuss the period in music history where the major labels attempted to curb illegal file-sharing by suing individual music fans. We look in particular at the cases of Jammie Thomas and Joel Tenenbaum who carried on fighting back long after anti-piracy tactics had moved on. Setlist is sponsored by 7digital.

It’s the fifth in our series of special editions of Setlist looking at some of our favourite music industry legal battles of all time. CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke discuss the libel proceedings Morrissey launched against the NME in 2011, four years after the magazine published an article he claimed called him racist. But with an album and plenty of tour dates under his belt in the interim, could he claim that his reputation had been damaged? Setlist is sponsored by 7digital.
