Michael Scott points us to the news that a bunch of big record labels have found their latest target for copyright infringement lawsuits: porn websites. Apparently, some of the websites that make their own videos have been including popular songs -- and some (*gasp*!) even show the actors lip-syncing along. It seems that the porn sites chose songs with... descriptive titles: Justin Timberlake's SexyBack, Michael Jackson's Don't Stop (Til You Get Enough) and Katy Perry's I Kissed a Girl. Assuming this ever gets to court, you have to imagine it will make for an interesting day in the courtroom when the "evidence" is shown.
