Media giants team up to sue YouTube

“A handful of key media companies have joined together to weigh the legality of some videos appearing on YouTube.com”.

Right. Now that YouTube is rich by over $1.6bn we should sue it so we can eat some of that pie too. Before the Google acquisition no one cared to sue them, as YouTube had no money. Bloody vultures.

I can’t say that I particularly blame them, since YouTube is absolutely loaded with illegal copies of their content…

I never said that they are not illegal. What BOTHERS me is that they do that AFTER youtube got bought. They wouldn’t touch it before because they knew that they had no money. It’s like the law only exists if there is money to be made.

I think it’s more a case of “it’s only worth investing a large of time and money trying the case when there’s sufficient potential reward”. Suing someone isn’t cheap. ;)

Suing is not cheap but I still don’t agree on how they go about it. It’s like laughing at the law. They are NOT after justice. They are after money.
