(Newser) – Los Angeles porn producer Vivid Entertainment Group is suing one of the many pornographic knockoffs of YouTube, claiming copyright infringement, reports the Los Angeles Times. The action is similar to Viacom’s suit against YouTube last year, which claimed the video-sharing site isn’t doing enough to prevent users from sharing copyrighted material.

“We've decided to take a stand and say, 'No more,' " said the head of Vivid. YouTube has revenue-sharing agreements with the major producers, but Vivid isn’t interested in tracking down every last clip from its archives that appear on the knockoff sites. "I can't be a policeman," said the Vivid executive.
