Submission + - Porn Company Sues Microsoft (iafrica.com)

eboluuuh writes: In a turn for the illogic, pornographic image company Perfect 10 has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft in which they allege that the software giant is infringing on its copyrighted work by showing thumbnails of their images in search results. According to TechSpot.com, Perfect 10 tried the same angle with Amazon and Google, which were both unsuccessful. Perfect 10 is also up in arms because the MSN Image Search returns links to other websites who also infringes on their copyright. "Microsoft is showing tens of thousands of extremely valuable celebrity images, along with Perfect 10 images, without authorization, which it obtains from hundreds if not thousands of pirate websites," alleges Norm Zada, president of Perfect 10.
