Judge Orders YouTube to Give All User Histories to Viacom

“Google will have to turn over every record of every video watched by YouTube users, including users’ names and IP addresses, to Viacom, which is suing Google for allowing clips of its copyright videos to appear on YouTube, a judge ruled Wednesday.” (wired)

Random comment snippets from the Wired piece:

I think if you hit the public mass the public mass should hit back.

Quick little note I jotted off to Viacom over on their contact page (http://www.viacom.com/contact/Pages/default.aspx).

The good news about the judge ordering Google to turn over the records is that it can’t be used against users.

judge is Louis Stanton . . . read the pdf folks.

Hit them in the pocketbooks, folks. Call your investment fund managers, and tell them that you no longer wish to invest in any Viacom holdings, and to divest of any you have now immediately.
