Following their threats to the 101GreatGoals blog last year, the Premier League is suing YouTube for copyright infringement. Blogger Nick at googlecopyright.blogspot.com points out some of the interesting territorial aspects of the case as well as the point that apparently the Premier League is requesting a class action suit, which would mean one case against Google/YouTube for all content copyright holders.
Techdirt suggests the PL want a piece of Viacom’s action. You will of course remember that Viacom is the biggest recent big name to sue YouTube. Google recently responded to the Viacom claims, apparently saying that the rights of millions of net users were under threat if Viacom’s claims were upheld.
