Viacom Suing YouTube for $1 Billion

YouTube is being sued for copyright infringement (source). Today, the media giant, Viacom, which owns such channels as MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network, to say the least, is suing YouTube for hosting clips and shows from their TV channels for $1 billion.

On another note, however sad this news may come to you, I personally am a little pleased that Viacom isn’t scared to go up against such a large company as Google, which acquired YouTube last year. Google being so large, many companies would go for the lower ankle biters before hitting the top dog. But this shows that being owned by Google doesn’t make you immune to attacks, which I give credit to Viacom.

So this goes out to all those who are planning to open a YouTube clone, think twice before you move forward on the idea. Or at least, keep a close eye on your user uploads. Be safe and happy earnings!
