The Digital Millennium Copyright Act was created in 1998, and back then, Congress didn't predict there would be these massive content sharing sites like YouTube -- and according to Fred von Lohmann, senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the copyright owners of today are not satisfied with the 1998 rules. And the lawsuits are an effort to re-negotiate the deal.

''The service providers are saying we can't do the policing for you. You have to police the content,'' according to von Lohmann.
