Copyright wars involving MySpace, YouTube

Out-law notes that Universal argues in its copyright suit against MySpace that the terms and conditions of the site are designed to absolve it of responsibility for material posted but that they do not. According to news agency AP the suit says that MySpace asks users to agree to grant MySpace a licence to publish all the content that the user uploads. Users, though, have no right to grant such a licence for content they do not own, it says.

Arguments about copyright issues with YouTube have also been made.
