Adult Magazine and Web Site Files Law Suit Against Google

by , Comments

Red Herring reports that Perfect 10, an adult magazine and Web Site has filed a lawsuit in a Los Angeles Court against Google. The suit alleges that the, "search engine giant provided Internet users with at least 800,000 unauthorized links to images of Perfect 10’s nude models, stealing membership fees and advertising revenue from the Los Angeles publisher. The lawsuit is one of the first of its kind against Google."

According to the suit, because Google profits from the misdeeds of others on the web, it is legally and financially responsible for the alleged violations.

Update: John Palfrey from the Berkman Center at Harvard Law offers an anlaysis. He has also made available a redacted version of the complaint (removing some "graphic" images).
