Submission + - FOX Subpoena's YouTube

popo writes: "From the "We all knew it would eventually come to this" department, FOX has subpoenaed YouTube for the identity of a user who posted entire episodes of "24" and "The Simpson's". It is not yet known whether YouTube has complied with the request. The "24" episodes in question actually appeared on YouTube prior to their primetime January 14 premiere on the Fox broadcast network, which spread four hourlong episodes of the hit drama over two consecutive nights. Fox became aware the episodes were on YouTube on January 8, according to the subpoena."
