Universal vs. MySpace Goat Rodeo

Universal Music Group is suing MySpace for copyright infringement, a proceeding Federated Media's John Battelle likens to a "big poo-flinging goat rodeo." At issue is music and video from Universal ending up on various nerds' MySpace pages — what the suit dismissively calls "so-called 'user-generated content.'" The suit claims the content is in fact "user-stolen," which doesn't have quite the same ring to it. Certainly not as jazzy as "goat rodeo."
