AOL Video Search Sued By Evel Knievel For Distributing Kanye West’s Music Video
Steve Bryant reports that Evel Knievel has sued not only Kanye West for making a music video that allegedly infringes on his likeness but has also sued AOL for helping distribute that video. AOL Video Search had clips of the music video come up for searches on “Evel Knievel.” When AOL was given the suit, they removed the music video they apparently hosted but it still comes up hosted elsewhere in their crawler-based search results. Oh, and Steve posted a YouTube video of the music video, I kinda like it. :)
