Steve Wozniak sued on YouTube

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak sued YouTube because the company allowed his image to be used in fraudulent videos.

In particular, the statement of claim submitted to the court of the California city of San Mateo indicates that fraudsters used photos and videos of Wozniak to convince YouTube users that he is arranging distribution of bitcoins, and anyone who sends him cryptocurrency will receive it back in double volume.

According to the plaintiff, YouTube does not respond appropriately to requests to remove fraudulent videos. In contrast, Twitter, in a similar situation, responded on the same day by removing deceptive content that defames Wozniak.

The lawsuit also indicates that the attackers use images of other celebrities, such as Bill Gates and Elon Musk.

Wozniak filed a lawsuit along with 17 other alleged victims of fraud. They are asking the court to order YouTube and its owner Alphabet Inc. to immediately delete the video and warn users about the actions of hackers.
