Viacom sues ‘GooTube’ for $1 billion

Parent of MTV, Comedy Central hits Google with first major copyright infringement suit. Will other media firms follow?

This is not a case where Viacom became really pissed off at YouTube’s copyright infringement. This is a case where Viacom saw that they can make $1bn via a lawsuit rather than $1mil-per-year via sharing ad revenue with Youtube. The lawsuit is driven by greed and it is not a cry for justice.
