Well it looks like Peekvid does have some legal problems after all.
Ars Technica is reporting that Peekvid and YouTVPC are both being sued by the MPAA. With the publicity these sites have received lately it was only a matter of time till the MPAA took notice.
The case was filed in a California federal court on Tuesday, with the general argument being that businesses should not be allowed to benefit from copyright material, even if it’s not being hosted on their own servers.
Unless they have some deep pockets I doubt Peekvid or YouTVPC will be around for much longer.
