NEW YORK — Media conglomerate Viacom Inc. (VIA) said Tuesday that it was suing Google Inc. (GOOG) and its Internet video-sharing site YouTube for more than $1 billion over unauthorized use of its programming online.

The lawsuit, the biggest challenge to date to Google's ambitions to make YouTube into a major vehicle for advertising and entertainment, accuses the Web search leader and its unit of "massive intentional copyright infringement."

They probably just want to be bought by Google.

This can only be a good thing for us concerned with protecting our magic. I see lots of unauthorized exposure magic doing a vanishing act from YouTube soon.

Best,

At the very least it will set some kind of precedent in this age of "download this" and " upload that" with no regard for copywrite issues. In the " sue happy " environment we live in...... I think the safety bubble many of these sites feel they are operating under will burst when they learn they may be held accountable for their hosting practices.

Best,
