Viacom Hangs Us Out To Dry

Google has been ordered by a US court to divulge their information regarding what we watch on YouTube, the “viewing log, which will be handed to Viacom, contains the log-in ID of users, the computer IP address (online identifier) and video clip details.” Twelve terabytes of data are being handed over to Viacom, who believes that YouTube is guilty of some serious copyright infringement. This has far reaching implications in regards to privacy, copyright, information retrival and our rights as consumers, but the potential embarassment for all those viewing puppies chasing kids or that awful Tina girl is also pretty strong.
