I had just presumed they had access to and were using this information long before this report came out.

I couldn't care less, I've gotten very used to the idea of every form of media being used as research for more advertising and money-making schemes by big corps. Why not, they have bills to pay too.

I'm sure I've watched plenty of things that infringe copyright on YouTube, but how the hell am I supposed to know what that constitutes as anyway?

I've got nothing to hide so why not? The only people who are concerned are probaly people who have been looking at stuff they shouldnt have.

I don't like Google - they seem to always be doing this. And, IMO, yes.

BTW, I don't look at stuff I shouldn't, I just really don't like people having information about me (can you tell by my profile? ). In fact, today I kicked up a huge fuss because I didn't want my 6th form having my e-mail address...They didn't get it

I don't care if they know that I may have watched some copyright on youtube. If the video doesn't say that it is ilegally uploaded and that the copyright owner has not given permission howt he hell am I supposed to know? I can just say that I assume that everything on Youtube was viewable (which it is). What are they going to do? Lock you up or ban you from the internet for watching a 10 minute clip on South Park?

They're anonymising all the data. Viacom only want it to prove in court how many non-compliant videos have been watched, from my understanding of the news stories about it.
