Judge Orders Youtube To Give All User Histories To Viacom!

More violation of privacy by the TPTB! One of the "big 5" having access to everyone's personal info!

Awesome.

Welcome to the Surveillance State people.


The Electronic Frontier Foundation has already reacted, calling the order a violation of the Video Privacy Protection act that "threatens to expose deeply private information."

The order also requires Google to turn over copies of all videos that it has taken down for any reason.

This is absurd. Viacom does not need the logs. Just ask for an accessed report. Its pretty simple with any database: 1) Which videos are being questioned? 2) How many users have viewed those videos? That's it. There's no need for info on IP addresses.

There is if your intent is to seek legal action (sue). They are using the courts as their own personal police force now. Their reach for power has no limits. But we knew they had won when the millennium act was passed. They made protecting their interests an official objective of law enforcement. I hate corporate machinations..., it is the reason they shouldn't be considered citizens, they are abusive of power and shielded from accountability..
