Adding to MP3.com Inc.'s legal woes, Zomba Recording Corp. and Zomba Music Publishing are expected to file copyright infringement lawsuits in U.S. District Court in New York today against the online music start-up. Analysts warn that the Zomba cases could be the first of many copycat claims brought by smaller labels and publishers against MP3.com. Like the major labels, Zomba Recording and Zomba Music are suing for copyright infringement stemming from MP3.com's My.MP3.com service.

A spate of licensing deals this week finally will allow an array of online music companies to offer songs from most or all of the major record labels, setting the stage for them to compete on the features they offer instead of on the limitations of their catalogs. Analysts say notable shortcomings remain in all the authorized services that could hurt their appeal and stunt innovation.

Bob Carlisle, a Nashville songwriter, was just as stunned as the rest of the pop world this week when his debut album soared to No. 2 on the national sales chart--all because of a song he once considered too personal to even put on record. The album, "Butterfly Kisses (Shades of Grace)," (see review on F6) is a runaway bestseller because of the enormous radio airplay being given the song "Butterfly Kisses," which Carlisle wrote 2 1/2 years ago for his daughter's 16th birthday.

'N Sync has always been a pesky little brother for the Backstreet Boys, constantly getting underfoot in the early days and then, worse, maturing into a rival that could actually compete for the affections (and allowances) of the nation's female youth. The battle between the heartthrob squads has never been confined to the charts either. Both fivesomes were, to a varying extent, assembled and trained under the watchful eye of Florida pop music entrepreneur Louis J. Pearlman.

If your radio has been tuned recently to KSCA (101.9 FM), KROQ (106.7 FM) or 91X (91.1 FM), there's a good chance you've heard "Flood," a tasty acoustic song by Jars of Clay. The Nashville-based quartet has been getting a fair amount of airplay for the song, thanks to its America-esque harmonies, a catchy refrain ("Lift me up when I'm falling") and a clever deluge theme. Not surprisingly, the group is on tour in support of "Flood" and the other songs on its debut album, "Jars of Clay."

No one knows which online music services will hit the jackpot, but the major record labels are determined to take their share of any Web company's winnings. That's the message that the labels are sending through a series of high-profile lawsuits against online music firms. A half-dozen lawsuits--including ones against Napster Inc., MP3.com and now Launch Media Inc.--have narrowed the services that can be offered without a license from the labels, while also setting a high price for licenses.
