Porn site sues Microsoft for nicking nudie pics

First Google, then Amazon, now MSN

Perfect 10 Inc, a publisher of nude model photography, is suing Microsoft for adding links and images of the company's rude content in search results taken from other Web sites illegally reproducing the material.

The same company has previously filed similar suits seeking injunctions against Googl and Amazon over alleged copyright infringement.

The latest suit alleges that Microsoft's MSN image search feature creates unauthorized thumbnails of content owned by Perfect 10 and includes links to see a full-size versions of the images for free. The suit also says that Microsoft's MSN search engine makes passwords available to the company's perfect10.com Web site.

Microsoft also takes advertising money from Web sites that have stolen Perfect 10 images, and provides links to Web sites that offer passwords for Perfect 10's services, according to the lawsuit.

The companies could not be immediately reached for comment.
