Google Alleges That Viacom ‘Secretly Uploaded Its Content to YouTube, Even While Publicly Complaining About Its Presence There’
Zahavah Levine, chief counsel for YouTube in its litigation with Viacom, explains:
For years, Viacom continuously and secretly uploaded its content to YouTube, even while publicly complaining about its presence there. […] Viacom’s efforts to disguise its promotional use of YouTube worked so well that even its own employees could not keep track of everything it was posting or leaving up on the site. As a result, on countless occasions Viacom demanded the removal of clips that it had uploaded to YouTube, only to return later to sheepishly ask for their reinstatement. In fact, some of the very clips that Viacom is suing us over were actually uploaded by Viacom itself.

Google runs into Copyright Dispute...
Does the Church of Scientology have a leg to stand on in suiing Google for linking to church documents? Be sure to check out Operation Clambake
, the site in question who claims all documentation on their site is ", is allowable under the "fair use" provisions of internationally recognized copyright law"
. If it is truly a question of copyright, shouldn't the Scientologists be suing the site
in question and not Google????
When Google removed the link, it outraged the technology community - can Google win in this case??? Check out what Don Marti
has to say about the issue...
