Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is suing YouTube and its parent company Google for purportedly permitting bitcoin giveaway scams that use his image to flourish on the video sharing platform.
Notably, Wozniak was one of eighteen plaintiffs that filed the litigation on Tuesday. The lawsuit demands disciplinary compensations, a trial by bench and demands YouTube get rid of all BTC giveaway scams and advertisements using Wozniak’s name and image.
The suit acclaimed Twitter for acting speedily and authoritatively to shut down suspected accounts and guard its users from the rip-off referencing the social media giant’s response to last week’s synchronized cyberattack that gained admittance to a multitude of substantiated Twitter accounts and posted a digital asset giveaway message.
The suit mentioned,
“In stark contrast, for months now, Defendant YOUTUBE has been unapologetically hosting, promoting, and directly profiting from similar scams.”
The suit demands a trial by jury on all subjects triable, and reparations that consist of legal expenditures, and any gains, revenues, or advantages unjustly attained by defendants.
