 YouTube sued again!

The Football Association Premier League Ltd. and publisher Bourne Co. sued YouTube in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, saying the online video pioneer was engaging in widespread copyright infringement to bring traffic to the site. The lawsuit asks for unspecified damages and YouTube's profits from the material in question. It also sought class action status.

This lawsuit comes less than two months after Viacom sued YouTube and Google for copyright infringement of their television programming, and six months after Google purchased the YouTube video sharing web site.

A mandolin player who recorded with The Grateful Dead also filed a copyright infringement lawsuit May 10 in federal court in San Francisco. The lawsuit says Google and YouTube "deliberately refuse to take meaningful steps to deter the rampant infringing activity readily apparent on YouTube."
