Utube.com Sues YouTube.com

It's funny.  Laugh.

IO ERROR (128968) writes "According to the BBC, Universal Tube and Rollform Equipment is suing YouTube over its domain name, claiming that the massive number of misdirected hits to its own site, Utube.com, instead of YouTube.com, caused it to have to move its web hosting five times. "In August, the company got 68 million hits on its site which eventually crashed. 'We were there first by 10 years,' Universal Tube's president Ralph Girkins told the Associated Press." 68 million people can't spell "You"?"
