Back in early July, the judge presiding over Viacom's $1 billion copyright infringement lawsuit against Google ordered the search engine giant to turn over details of who viewed what YouTube videos. The ruling was a substantial victory for Viacom, which wanted the data to buttress its claim that potentially millions of people had illegally watched its copyrighted content, but terrified privacy advocates like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, who worried over what else Viacom might do with the data. Now, Viacom has agreed to a deal in which Google will give them data regarding how many times viewers watched its videos, but will scrub Internet address data which could identify individual users. This feels win-win, but as CNET News noted, Viacom may have really been gunning for data on what Google's own executives were watching on YouTube. Google's defense has always been that it didn't have the capacity to review every video posted on YouTube and delete copyrighted material. But if Viacom could find that people such as YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley watched Viacom content on YouTube and did nothing to scrub it, their case could be airtight. Now, it looks like they won't get chance.
