In a ruling that may set parameters for applying copyright law to the Internet, a New York federal judge has found Inc. liable for copyright infringement in a lawsuit brought by the recording industry.

On Friday, Judge Jed Rakoff of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a brief statement upholding the Recording Industry Association of America’s motion for summary judgment. He set an Aug. 28 trial date to consider damages, remedies and an injunction. The RIAA is seeking billions of dollars in damages.
