So says Universal. Perhaps you've read of the case where Universal demanded that a YouTube video featuring a toddler dancing to a Prince song be taken down. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is pressing to have that action declared frivolous, and, while it may seem so on the surface, the surface doesn't carry much weight in court. Turns out Universal may have a point, according to this story. Of course, you can have a point and still be both wrong and contemptible, as Universal has been from the start on this one.
