Google prepares to defend YouTube use

Google agrees with Viacom on two points: Google spent $1.65 billion to buy YouTube last year and YouTube is popular.

Beyond that, Google Inc. said in a court filing Monday that it will fight for its digital rights against media giant Viacom Inc. in what could be a landmark battle over how digital content is shared and viewed on the Internet.

“We feel very strongly about our legal position and we are ready to take it to court,” said Catherine Lacavera, Google’s litigation counsel. “They are making allegations of copyright infringement and we are denying them.”

Viacom sued the search giant and its video-sharing site YouTube for $1 billion in damages in New York federal court in March, claiming that the site was enriching Google through the unauthorized posting of Viacom entertainment by YouTube users.
