IE7 rejected, YouTube misdirected | InfoWorld | News | November 10, 2006 | By Robert X. Cringely®
In a pickle: YouTube is being sued by the Universal Tube and Rollform Corporation, whose utube.com Web site has been deluged by quasi-literate Netizens looking for video clips but finding rotary welders and de-dimpling machines instead. Apparently utube’s traffic soared from a few thousand to several million hits per month, taking the site offline. Company president Ralph Girkins wants the video site to fork over big bucks to cover his “rebranding” costs. No word yet on whether he also plans to sue Vlasic, makers of sweet gherkins, for borrowing his last name.
