Comment: *cries* Leave YouTube Alone! :p (Score 1) 778

by Da Rabid Duckie (#24043001) Attached to: YouTube Must Give All User Histories To Viacom
FTA (Underlined for emphasis):

Viacom wants the data to prove that infringing material is more popular than user-created videos, which could be used to increase Google's liability if it is found guilty of contributory infringement.

I don't see this happening. Youtube may have a lot of copyrighted materials, but user-created videos have exploded.

Just a few of the smaller but popular examples:

Chocolate Rain -- 25,053,011
Leave Britney Alone -- 21,145,310 (and most of Chris Crockers other videos have an average of 2 million views)
Charlie the Unicorn -- 25,680,981
And of course, the king... Evolution of Dance, with 90,944,416 views.

You can fool all the people all of the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough. -- Joseph E. Levine
