LONDON, July 30 YouTube said on Wednesday it
respected copyright holders and did not see any need for the
legal case launched by Italian publisher Mediaset (MS.MI)
against the video-sharing site and its owners.
Mediaset said on Wednesday it had filed a suit against
Internet search company Google Inc (GOOG.O) and its YouTube for
illegal use of its materials.
"YouTube respects copyright holders and takes copyright
issues very seriously," the company said in a statement. "There
is no need for legal action and all the associated costs."
