MPAA Targets YouTVpc And Peekvid

July 3, 2007

“It seems as though the MPAA’s legal team has been eating it’s “Wheaties” this week because it has just announced that it filed lawsuits in the federal court of Los Angeles yesterday against YouTVpc and Peekvid, accusing them of contributing to and profiting from “…massive copyright infringement by identifying, posting, organizing, and indexing links to infringing content found on the Internet that consumers can then view on-demand.”

“The sole purpose of these sites is to disseminate content that has been illegally reproduced and distributed. They are a one-stop shop for copyright infringement. These lawsuits should serve as warning to other aspiring movie theft ‘entrepreneurs’ that they are not above the law and will face serious consequences for their activities. Profiting from the theft of other people’s creative works is illegal and must be stopped,” John Malcolm, Executive Vice President and Director of Worldwide Anti-Piracy Operations for the MPAA.”
