I think that, as mentioned earlier, everyone wants to get on the google boat. Any way that they can...even if it means slapping them with a lawsuit. I mean yeah they did have it coming to them in a way, but I'm sure people like us don't care whether or not they have licensed material up or not...I mean, who complains about free stuff? (that is, if you aren't the one producing the material)...

Here's the verdict on the case.

Google ordered to give YouTube user data to Viacom. Under this ruling, Google has to give Viacom log-in names of YouTube users and Internet protocol (IP) addresses identifying which computers they used for viewing videos.

You can read more details on this website. (Don't want to give a long post by pasting the article here)

I know most of you will say this sucks and that Viacom is just out to protect its own turf and make money out of an internet giant. While it isn't legal to upload and download stuff like that, I think it is high time these companies sit down and think about why they are losing to the internet and change their business model.

Controversial complaints by VIACOM

In 2007 Viacom, claiming copyright infringment, requested the removal of a Youtube video that contained a part of their show, Web Junk 2.0, which featured a video from Youtube that Viacom allegedly used without permission. Christopher Knight, the creator of the video, wrote in a blog post: "So Viacom took a video that I had made for non-profit purposes and without trying to acquire my permission, used it in a for-profit broadcast. And then when I made a YouTube clip of what they did with my material, they charged me with copyright infringement and had YouTube pull the clip. Folks, this is, as we say down here in the South, ‘bass-ackwards.'"Knight subsequently filed a Digital Millennium Copyright Act counter-notification claim with YouTube. Two weeks later Viacom yielded to Knight and the disputed clip was restored.

Viacom has the right to sue Youtube because it's clearly illegal.
Youtube has the responsibility to filter all the copyright materials to avoid this kind of incident.
I think Youtube is having a hard time in monitoring its site because they have a lot of users who keep on uploading copyright materials.
