Vivendi sues Murdoch's MySpace
p2pnet.net News:- Big Four Organized Music member Vivendi Universal is suing Rupert Murdoch's MySpace.com for, you guessed, it, copyright infringement, calling the site a "vast virtual warehouse" of pirated works.
It's already suing Grouper, owned by one of its Big Four colleagues, Sony, as well as Bolt, another video site.
And it's all about the online advertising dollar - your advertising dollar.
Vivendi claims "no intellectual property is safe" from the alleged copyright infringement, even unreleased albums, continues The Los Angeles Times.
