YouTube users have nothing to worry about


by David Allen

When a Judge ruled that Google, or rather YouTube, had to let Viacom have detailed information on its users, many people believed that this could be the beginning of a campaign similar to that of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), which has been chasing after individuals.

But according to the company this will not be the case, as Viacom only require this information as a back up for the court case.

This is to show exactly how many of YouTube’s users are looking at copyrighted material which has been uploaded by other users.

In fact people from both YouTube and Viacom are looking at the possibility of producing lists which can simply show the users’ viewing patterns, without giving away the personal details.

This is Viacom’s attempt to prove that YouTube has been built up by their users viewing copyrighted material, rather than user generated material.
