Buena Vista, Disney-owned movie company, has sued Video Pipeline accusing the company for violating Buena Vista's copyrights by distributing their movie trailers.
Video Pipeline provides movie trailers as part of their promotional streaming service aimed for retailer use. Lawsuit is pretty weird because movie trailers are specifically meant for promoting upcoming movie releases -- they are advertisements -- and the value of the trailers for movie studio would be that as many user as possible has a possibility to see them.

But anyway, case is going on and we'll see how it ends -- there are tons of websites in the world that are focused solely on movie trailer distribution.
