A Colma, California card room, Lucky Chances Casino, has filed suit to keep casino fight videos off of YouTube.

Several fights were posted by patrons on the popular video-uploading website.  Lucky Chances claims such videos has harmed its reputation. 

Videos on YouTube.com shows one suited man wrestling with another at a card table while another involves a heated fight among several players. 

“The way money changes hands and the way people come in here when they really can't afford to, I'm surprised this doesn't happen a lot more often,” said one patron of the casino in an interview with local San Francisco television station KTVU. “Anyone coming to this place is not going to be deterred by something like that, I'll tell ya."

KTVU showed one of the videos to Golden Gate University law professor Micheal Zampirini to get his opinion.

“My first impression is that it's not somebody taping the fight. It's someone taping the security camera taping the fight,” said Zampirini.

Commenting on the YouTube.com website, one reader wrote:

“Is this the one (casino) in Colma that is suing YouTube? Why? Its handled pretty quickly.  Search ‘Dennys fights’ if you want to see some good ones.
