    Reading the articles that you post links to is AWESOME.


    It will be interesting to see how this works out, and how Google reacts to any lawsuit that Viacom may file down the line.

    Moreover, all the stuff owned by Viacom's MTV division gets to stay where it is.

    So actually not news in any way. Youtube gets hundreds of these requests.
