Utube Sues YouTube

(CBS/AP)
Think you've seen enough articles about the potential of YouTube getting sued?

Make room for one more. Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corp., whose Web site is … wait for it… utube.com, is a company with 17 employees that sells "used machines that make tubes." (I don't know either.) Which is why they're sort of peeved that they received, oh, about 68 million hits on their Web site in August. In all likelihood, those visitors weren't interested in purchasing used machinery of any kind.

So utube is suing YouTube because, well, all those people who are seeking clips of Borat shopping for cheese are shutting down the site. Utube is asking that YouTube either stop using the address Youtube.com, or pay the company's cost of getting a new domain name.
