Viacom to Google: Enough already

Here’s how it works.

Google’s YouTube provides a service that lets people upload videos to their site for free hosting and download. YouTube has a warning on the home page that basically says "don’t post other people’s copyrighted material," but, of course, people do.

Google is of the opinion that as long as it removes copyrighted material promptly when specifically asked, it’s in the clear.  However, they had promised media owners that they were going to install a content monintoring service earlier this year to deal with the problem of pirated videos. They didn’t.

Viacom says there are pver 100,000 clips on YouTube service that belong to them and these clips have generated 1.2 billion video streams. Meanwhile, Google collects the revenue from these views and does not share it with Viacom.

Viacom says "take them all off now and keep them off."

I’ve got an opinion about this one, but what do you think?
