MTV to sue Revision3

I was at the Revision3 party last night and while watching the cool quicktime intro to all their new media properties saw NotMTV.

MTV is going to sue the pants off these guys. Even if they lose the case they can’t have someone out there openly mocking them and claiming that MTV is lame.

Don’t spend your VC money on lawsuits guys.

    Revision 3 does not own the NotMTV.tv domain or the show. So no need to worry about their VC’s — Revision 3 has paid nothing for the content, they run it on their site as free music content.

    The NotMtv.tv website is owned by one guy without a penny to his name, he can only HOPE that MTV sues. I would love to see that jury — one poor guy with a camera aginst Viacom… NotMTV is no threat to a 25 year old institution. seriously.

    You say that NotMTV mocks MTV — since when is mocking illegal? George Bush should sue half the websites on the internet if that were the case. Starbucks should sue ihatestarbucks.com But more importantly, you did not watch Not Mainstream Typicval Videos because where exactly do they claim that MTV is lame?
    The site or the show never once critizes MTV and certainly never slanders mtv in any way. NotMTV stands for Not Mainstream Typical Videos, it is only a creative reference for being a music video site that is NOT MTV. MTV does not play videos anymore — that is the reference and it happens to be true.

    Now if the music video site were called MTVsucks or Ihatemtv — perhaps they would have slander case of some sort. but in reality, NotMTV is doing a grassroots channel that mtv can no longer do because of how large they have become and the revenue they must generate.

    Are you new here?

    Seriously…. that’s a really naive statement.

    Corporations (especially RIAA members) sue people ALL the time even though they’ll lose in court or have no case.

    You have to hire lawyers which are expensive…. the second you have to get lawyers involved you’ve already lost.
