In Capitol Records v. VideoEgg, a case brought in Manhattan, District Judge Harold Baer has denied the motion of HI5 to dismiss the complaint for lack of jurisdiction and improper venue, but granted the motion to transfer the case to Northern District of California, for the convenience of witnesses and in the interests of justice.

Accordingly the case is transferred to San Francisco, California.
