Some sixty years ago, Grundig, the German electronic equipment manufacturer, introduced a revolutionary new device: the magnetophone. With this analogue recording device one could record music from a gramophone player or from radio broadcasts. With the growing popularity of  the magnetophone, concerns mounted about diminishing sales with music copyright holders. In 1955, the German collecting rights society GEMA decided to bring suit against Grundig, despite the fact that there was no actual proof that the use of the magnetophone led to a loss of income.
