A chain of Internet Cafes owned by the founder of EasyJet has been found guilty of piracy.

It has taken 18 months between major record labels and the EasyInternet cafe chain over a promotion to charge customers £5 to copy a CD full of music from the 'net.

They suspended their services in September 2001, and the founder has since accused the record labels, including Sony Music, EMI and Universal Music of "Extortion".
