Sony BMG, XM resolve argument over devices


MUMBAI: XM Satellite Radio and Sony BMG Music Entertainment have announced that they have resolved the lawsuit brought by Sony BMG against XM over its Pioneer Inno, a portable satellite radio with advanced recording features. The companies did not disclose terms of the deal. 

Sony BMG is the third music company to resolve its dispute with XM regarding radios with advanced recording functionality. Similar agreements were announced in December 2007 between XM and both Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group. Sony BMG has withdrawn as a party to the complaint filed by the major record companies against XM in May 2006.
