Google Sued Over Google Video… Details Missing
from the who-did-what-to-who-now? dept
For all the hand-wringing and conspiracy theories over Google getting sued for its own Google Video offering or YouTube’s offering infringing on someone’s copyright, it appears that something has finally happened — it’s just that no one knows exactly what. Google released information today saying that a lawsuit has been filed against their video offering for copyright infringement — though they explain none of the details (though, we’re sure they’ll come out soon enough). For all we know, this could be the lawsuit that was filed against YouTube over the summer. Chances are it’s something different, but it’s hard to say if it’s substantial or legitimate at this point. Just because someone sued, it doesn’t mean that Google is guilty or in trouble. In fact, as we’ve seen, Google seems to live for these types of lawsuits where they can fight them to set the precedent and make it clear what’s legal and what’s not.
