Judge orders Google to give YouTube data to Viacom

spacebird spacebird writes  |  more than 6 years ago

spacebird writes "A federal judge has ruled that Google must turn over user data to Viacom from its video site YouTube, including "how often users watch videos, how much time they spend doing it, their username and their IP addresses." The suit brought by Viacom says that YouTube "hasn't done enough to remove copyrighted material from its site" and is trying to prove that they are making more money off the copyrighted videos than the amateur ones. They also tried to get Google to turn over its search engine code, saying that it was skewing results to generate more hits on the copyrighted material, but that request was denied. You can find another take on the story here."
