Web 2.0 has brought with itself too many lawsuit infringements. Youtube takes the lead with many companies taking there turns to sue it for videos which Youtube should not have on its website. It seems a nice way to earn money.

This time its Church of England sues Sony over the use of Manchester Cathedral as the backdrop to Resistance: Fall of Man, a PlayStation 3 game "in which hundreds are killed during a virtual shoot-out inside the Cathedral".

The Church says Sony didn't ask for permission to use the cathedral and has demanded an apology and the removal of the game from shop shelves - otherwise legal action will be considered. Now that's a big ask, especially as it's one of PS3's biggest sellers. Sony has not returned calls to officials from the Church. Sony has also been branded "irresponsible" for choosing Manchester. Bishop of Manchester, the Rt Rev Nigel McCulloch, said: "It is well known that Manchester has a gun crime problem. For a global manufacturer to re-create one of our great Cathedrals with photo-realistic quality and then encourage people to have guns battles in the building is beyond belief and highly irresponsible."

ITV concluded by saying that during the game "players are asked to assume the role of an army sergeant and win a battle" and that screenshots show the interior of the Cathedral "with the player's gun ready to fight; soldiers can be seen elsewhere in the nave taking aim".
