YouTube is having more problems with copyrights. Now there are sports organizations that are joining in the complaints YouTube has copyrighted content on its site. The British Premier League soccer/football league has sued YouTube and the British Rugby League has also joined in the lawsuit.
This follows the pattern we saw earlier with YouTube and for example comedy clips such as those from Comedy Central, NBC's Saturday Night Live etc. And we discussed it soon after YouTube was sold, that we thought it might have been "cheating" by YouTube that they achieved artificially high growth rates and user numbers, fully knowing it was achieved by infringing on copyrighted content. We will continue to monitor this story.
