The latest copyright fight - Perfect 10 vs Amazon

Perfect 10 Files Motion for Preliminary Injunction Against Amazon Alleging Copyright Infringement , which means that the magazine Perfect 10 sues Amazon (and A9.com) for displaying their copyrighted images.

According to Perfect 10, Amazon and A9.com will likely argue that because they provide a "search function," they should be excused from liability for copyright infringement. From Perfect10's standpoint, search engines like A9.com and Google aren't directing people where to find Perfect 10 images -- that would be Perfect 10 Magazine and perfect10.com -- rather, they are displaying Perfect 10 images themselves. To the extent that A9.com or Google do direct users searching for Perfect 10 pictures, it is virtually always to a website which misappropriated those images, not to perfect10.com, Zada says.
Via the Trademark Blog who daringly have posted a Perfect 10 cover. *gasp*!
