Universal Sues MySpace for Copyright Infringement

Popular social-networking Web site MySpace was slapped with its first copyright-infringement lawsuit, by Universal Music Group, alleging that the site enables "rampant" unauthorized copying and distribution of its artists' songs and videos. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, said "[n]o intellectual property is safe in the MySpace world of infringement -- not plaintiffs' videos, not plaintiffs' songs, not even songs from the unreleased album 'Kingdom Come' by superstar artist Jay-Z."
