Viacom Sues Google For More Than $1,000,000,000

Based on YouTube’s unauthorized showings of Viacom programs, Google (which now owns YouTube) is being sued for copyright infringement…for more than a billion bucks. Viacom contends that Google is making advertising income off of this video infringement.

Given the nature of the business model, look for Google to ultimately reach a settlement in this case whereby Viacom gets a cut of the ad revenues.
