Manatee County Fair in NJ is suing Google for violating copyright
A lawsuit filed in New Jersey is seeking to block Google from using photos and video from the Manatees County Fair as part of its search engine.
The Fair is held every year on the grounds of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds in Manateec, N.J. The fair is one of the most visited fairs in the country, with about 8 million visitors each year.
Google’s use of photos and videos from the fair could cause a flood of copyright infringement lawsuits from Manateefornia county, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims that Google infringes on Manateegas fair use rights by using copyrighted images from the Fair, which were created in the early 1990s.
The photos and photos of the fair’s original logo are among the objects in the lawsuit, according the lawsuit obtained by NBC New York.
The images have been used on a variety of Google search results, including the search engine’s homepage, according Google.
The company said it takes fair use infringement seriously and works with third parties to ensure fair use.
