Universal Music, the world‘slargest record company, has launched the established media industry‘sfirst legal action against user-generated internet sites in the wake of its distribution deal last week with YouTube, the most popular video-sharing website. —Joshua ChaffinUniversal sues video-sharing websites (FT.com)

Note that YouTube isn’t the one being sued. YouTube actually cut a deal with Universal.

I wonder whether part of the deal with YouTube sort of hinted with a wink that Universal should sue YouTube’s competitors.
