Users square off on PeoplesCourtRaw.com

Some TV shows, when converted into user-powered web properties, make a lot of sense. Take the People’s Court, for example. The show’s new site, PeoplesCourtRaw.com, invites users to upload “public arguments” of an issue, both for and against. So for example, one issue is “boyfriends should pay for birth control.” Both the girlfriend and the boyfriend posted their video arguments, and the public can vote (right now, girlfriend is winning with 61%.) By the way, the site hasn’t officially launched yet — it was discovered by this site while still in beta. And while TMZ.com founder Harvey Levin hosts an introductory video on the site, he’s not the creator of PeoplesCourtRaw.com.
