What’s the point of suing YouTube when you can sue Google? That seems to be the logic behind Time Warner’s announcement that they will pursue their copyright complaints against YouTube.
Just days after the announced acquisition of YouTube by Google, Time Warner makes its move. Obviously, this is no coincidence. Why sue a company that loses millions of dollars per year when you can take on the multibillion dollar giant? Time Warner might be the first, but it is most definitely not going to be the last company to sue.
And Google can’t say they haven’t been warned. It’s time for their high-priced lawyers to earn their salaries and for Google to hang on for a rough ride ahead.
