Adult Site Sues Google for Infringment

A Web site that sells photos of naked women is suing Google Inc., alleging that the online search engine leader is destroying its business by distributing links and passwords that provide free glimpses of the nude models. Beverly Hills-based Perfect 10 Inc. is seeking unspecified damages from Mountain View-based Google for alleged copyright infringement.

Google spokesman Steve Langdon declined to comment Monday, saying the company hadn't seen the suit yet. The civil complaint, filed late last week in Los Angeles federal court, revolves around some of the graphic imagery found through Google's search engine. Perfect 10 says Google is providing unauthorized access to thousands of its copyrighted pictures. The company charges a monthly membership fee of $25.50 for its Web site.
