Erin Andrews Hotel Room Video Creates Controversy

Sports reporter Erin Andrews of ESPN was secretly video taped in her hotel room and now the video has been released on the Internet.

Almost immediately, both Andrews lawyers and lawyers from ESPN have aggressively been fighting to get the video removed from the Internet. They were successful in getting the video removed from the primary website, but chances are that the video, which shows Erin Andrews nude was downloaded by too many people to not show up again.

In the meantime, some people are still reporting the ability to download the peephole video via Google Cache.

This brings up some interesting legal issues. Is Google responsible for the content of their cache? If so, should Erin Andrews lawyers go after Google since most people are now watching the video using Google's cache? Is Google now the official distributor?

Presumably these are issues that the courts will decide over time.
