Universal Music Group last week sued MySpace.com in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, claiming the online social-networking hub illegally encourages its users to share music and music videos on the site without permission. The recording company is seeking unspecified damages, including up to $150,000 for each unauthorized music video or song posted on the Web site. MySpace issued a statement saying it is in full compliance with copyright laws and is confident it will prevail in court.
