Nothing registered users can do about Google handing over the details really, it'll be in the privacy agreements and usage policies. When thinking about it, it really is Youtube's fault that this has got so far - they should've known that uploading copyrighted content would come to this if they didn't heed the requests of the copyright holders.

taht already happens but it asks you if you want to be seen viewing a certian video or not. Onemore step towards the NWO and the bigbrother scenario.

Already a thread on this. I don't care. I think it's Youtube's fault for showing the material and not the user. I don't upload anyway.

What you mean it asks you if you want to be seen viewing a video?

Sorry, I didn't realise there was already a thread on this. I did search.

The little red or green square next to your name when logged in on YouTube. If it's green, people can see what video you're watching (assuming they're watching it at the same time) and a list of those videos are listed on your profile; if it's red, they can't.

It's absolutely ridiculous. How can they legally do that? Isn't it a complete invasion of privacy?

Viacom are *******s.

Can I just ask will they just prosecute YouTube and Google for this? They are the ones who have put this stuff on, or allowed this stuff onto the internet in the first place.

So will Google just get prosecuted then? It's more reasonable. You can't hunt down millions of people. There's not enough man power.

I just find it very sinister, that's all. You can't honestly tell me you don't feel the same way. People's details shouldn't be made public unless there is some good reason for them to be. This isn't one.

Haha, The YT "Videos watched" counter is seriously bugged.

Also - I think it will be YouTube who will be paying the fines etc. I dont think its legal for them to prosecute people who just watch videos hosted by Google.

The Data can only be used to "prove the prevalence of the usage of copyright material", Nothing more. Also Google are pushing for only non-personally identifiable logs to be given

Google, meanwhile, released a statement that said the company is "asking Viacom to respect users' privacy and allow us to anonymize the logs before producing them under the court's order.
