Viacom vs. Google, YouTube

"Media conglomerate" Viacom has filed proceedings in the District Court for the Southern District of New York against Google and YouTube for what it describes as "massive international copyright infringement." Read more in the Sydney Morning Herald article here.

According to reports, the commencement of the lawsuit by Viacom comes after a "great deal of unproductive negotiation" with Google and YouTube. Let's see if more productive negotiations can occur now, or whether the case makes it before the courts. Sadly, it's cases like this which makes us copyright law-types wait with baited breath.
