Viacom forces Google to turn over logs of YouTube & *Your* Privacy is at Stake!

It's ironic that I post this story on Independence Day here in the U.S.

If you have a YouTube user name and password and have ever watched a video, Viacom is going to know about it. Your privacy has been abandoned in a copyright infringement lawsuit between two financial behemoths and who knows where it will end?

On Tuesday a federal judge ruled that Viacom can have access to what users have watched. Google has fought this for quite some time, but at this point in the battle, Viacom has won... at least for now.
