The Continuing Decline of Viacom
I’ve long been disillusioned with Viacom and it’s child companies, especially after CBS/UPN canceled such great shows as Enterprise and Joan of Arcadia, despite massive Fan support. Today, Viacom proves yet again that it doesn’t care about the interest of it’s viewers, YouTube has long had a mechanism in place where if a copyright owner complains, they will pull down the copyrighted content quickly.
I decided to look up the lawsuit to see the information on this suit is available. I did a Search for Viacom on Justia Federal Court Filings and Dockets, and found Viacom International, Inc. et al v. Youtube, Inc. et al, case 1:2007cv02103, filed March 13th, 2007 in the New York Southern Federal District Court, Foley Square Office.
