Universal music sues two video-sharing websites

The largest record company in the world has initiated the first big-media lawsuit against video-sharing websites. Snip from Financial Times:
In separate lawsuits, Universal alleged that Grouper.com – recently acquired by Sony Pictures Entertainment – and Bolt.com had built up traffic by encouraging users to share music videos from its artists without their permission. In one incident, it claimed a video for the Mariah Carey song “Shake it Off” was viewed more than 50,000 times on Grouper without the company’s permission.
