Firm Denied Hearing on Scour Assets Bid

November 23, 2000|P.J. Huffstutter

A federal bankruptcy judge denied MP3Board.com Inc.'s request for an emergency hearing, and told the online search engine that it would have to wait until Dec. 12 to bid on the assets of the now-defunct firm Scour Inc. While MP3Board did not say how much it plans to bid, it disclosed in a court filing that it wants only Scour's file-sharing technology, known as Scour Exchange. The Napster-like technology--at the heart of pending legal action--allowed consumers to copy and swap digitized versions of songs, movies, photographs and other multimedia files. MP3Board had requested the hearing before Judge Kathleen March in Los Angeles to determine whether MP3Board could bid piecemeal on Scour's assets, which also includes a multimedia search engine.
