Playlist, Inc. operates the playlist.com website (formerly Project Playlist) and is a company that provides widgets for MySpace, myYearbook and Facebook. Playlist was founded in the early 2000s for the purpose of putting more music on Myspace and other social networking sites. With the popularity of social networking sites and online blogs, playlist.com has experienced enormous growth. From a userbase of less than 500,000 in mid-2006, it grew to more than 20,000,000 users as of June 30, 2008. It was originally known as projectplaylist.com, before it acquired its current domain name of playlist.com. A key concern for this site was that the majority of the files linked to are pirated content distributed without the authorization of the copyright holders. On April 28, 2008, the RIAA and a coalition of nine record labels filed a lawsuit against the company for contributing to mass copyright infringement.
