UMG hits Veoh with suit


NEW YORK -- Universal Music Group filed suit against online video site Veoh, claiming copyright infringement. The company first threatened the suit last month, to which Veoh responded with a preemptive suit, asking a federal court to block any potential legal action by UMG.

Veoh hosts a variety of user-submitted video clips on its site, much like YouTube. The company says it has implemented technology to block users from uploading copyrighted material, and that it removes any violating content when notified.
