News: On Tuesday, Universal Music sued video sharing site Veoh for alleged copyright infringement. The lawsuit was filed in the Southern District of New York, where 2 copyright lawsuits have been filed against YouTube. According to Wired’s account, Veoh runs a peer-to-peer network called “Veohnet,” which is different from YouTube’s architecture (YouTube stores all files on its own servers). Like YouTube, though, it’s expected that Veoh will raise a defense based on the DMCA safe harbor. (more)
Analysis: The more copyright lawsuits that are filed, I think the greater chances that one or more of these suits will reach all the way to the Supreme Court.
