Ohio based company Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corp. has filed a lawsuit against YouTube Inc. claiming that in the recent past months it has cost a fortune to keep their website – utube.com – hosted due to the high demands of Internet users expecting to see youtube.com. Universal Tube’s President Ralph Girkins said that they have moved the website five times in attempts to stay ahead of high demands and traffic loads of YouTube users.The lawsuit states that YouTube Inc. stop using the domain youtube.com or pay Universal Tube the cost of creating a new domain. Wow? What a whole $8.99 USD from Godaddy? What’s sad is that I’m sure the lawsuit is march larger than the cost of a new domain. Perhaps they should just propose a sale of utube.com to someone looking to illegally host a link farm?
